Young carers and young adult carers: providing care during coronavirus

The UK Government has produced new guidance and information for people under the age of 25 who cares for a family member who cannot cope without their support during the coronavirus pandemic. This may be because they have a lifelong condition, illness, disability, serious injury, a mental health condition or an addiction..  The guidance includes information on staying safe and well, practical advice and support, schools and education, and information for young adult carers on how to support people when you are not living at home. The guidance is also available in easy read format and for users of assistive technology.
