I am a young carer and as it is coming up to anti-bullying week I decided to try and make a difference. Many people do not even know what a young carer is, how being one affects you as an individual and what support is in place for young carers who are struggling.

Anyone have any questions in general? I'd be pleased to answer anything. :)

    Thanks so much for posting. I think it's really important that people are aware of the issues young carers face. Next week we've invited the Young Carers net into the community to answer people's questions, so it would be great if you could pitch in and get involved with that. We'd love to hear your opinions!

    No worries, it's not always straightforward finding your way around to begin with! So, the Young Carers net are on our community advisors forum here:http://bit.ly/1v9jsJN Do go and introduce yourself, I'm sure they'd love to 'meet' you!
