How Coronavirus is affecting young carers and young adult carers, and what they want you to do next
Caring day and night without a break. Worrying about keeping the people they care for safe. Coping with a mental health condition without support. Feeling lonely. Falling behind at school, college or university. Struggling to access food and medicines.
This is what the pandemic has meant for the thousands of young carers and young adult carers across the UK.
Carers Trust, our member organisation in the UK, has just published an interesting policy brief based on a survey with 961 UK young carers about how they have been affected by COVID-19.
