Support for Children and Young People with Caring responsibilities

Hertfordshire recognise young carers as children and young people under the age of 18 years, who provide care to another family member, who has physical illness / disability; mental ill health; sensory disability or has a problematic use of drugs or alcohol. The level of care they provide would be usually taken on by an adult and as a result of this has significant impact on their normal childhood.
