Are you a Young Carer?

A young carer is someone aged under 18 who has an important role in looking after a person who is experience illness or disability.

There are more that 100,000 Young Carers in Scotland.

The majority of Young Carers do not see themselves as carers.  They see it as helping out a family member.  It is a natural thing to do, to want to help the people closest to you.

Crossroads Lewis could help you take a break from caring.

We know it is important you get a chance to be JUST YOU.
