Young adult carers (YACs) are people aged 18–25 years who provide care to a relative who is ill or has a disability. France begins to come to the YAC issue. YAC students were mentioned for the first time in a national policy document in 2019. By interviewing 110 students, this review showed that more than 80% of them did not know what a YAC was. If students are not aware of this status, they cannot self‐identify as carers and seek support.
