Young Carers Campaign
Today, there’s an estimated 700,000 young carers in the UK looking after loved ones with disabilities, long-term illnesses, mental health issues or addiction problems.
Caring for a loved one from a young age can have a serious impact on a young person’s future prospects, education outcomes and mental health. That’s why we have launched the Young Carers Campaign, a collaboration that aims to invest £1.5m over three years to give tens of thousands of young people the chance of a brighter future.Young carers
The aims of our headline campaign are to:
- Provide immediate relief, digital guidance and personal development opportunities.
- Inspire long-term change for young carers.
- Change perceptions of caring.
