Barnardo's Action with Young Carers, Liverpool and Wirral

Barnardo's Action with Young Carers Service supports young carers living in Liverpool and Wirral. Young carers are children and young people under the age of 18 years who provide care to another family member who has a physical illness/disability including mental ill health, sensory disability or has a problematic use of drugs or alcohol.

The level of care they provide would usually be undertaken by an adult and as a result this has a significant impact on their childhood.

Young carers often do not think of themselves as carers, and are not recognised as such by other people like friends, teachers, doctors and other family members.
