  • Young Adult Carers

    Figures released in May 2013, from the 2011 census, show that there has been a 25% increase in the number of young adult carers, aged 16-25. Research conducted by NIACE and others, and widespread anecdotal evidence shows that young adult carers are far more likely to be NEET (not in education, employment or training) than their peers, and that they experience a range of difficulties and disadvantage, including poverty, isolation, physical and mental health difficulties which have consequences for them, and their families, throughout their lives.
