Children and young people who provide help and care to a family member are called young carers. They deliver unpaid care to a friend or family . It is important to raise awareness of Young Carers in our community so that they themselves can be supported. 800,000 children in the UK have the role of a young carer and can find it difficult to explain what this is like to others. The Education Officer from Cheshire Young Carers helped the children in Audlem St James Primary School consider what being a young carer might be like and to understand the role Cheshire Young Carers in offering support and respite.
