    Hi @annie674 and a warm welcome to the community. :) 
    Year 11 can be really intense with the last year of GCSEs, how are you managing? 

    I have a lot of experience as a carer but I wasn't a young carer. Do you mind if I ask who it is you're a carer for? What sort of tips are you looking for?

    Hi @annie674 and welcome to the Community.  It is nice to meet you and thank you for sharing with us.  You are doing a wonderful job in being a young carer and managing your education on top of that!  My husband is my carer and I can't begin to imagine how challenging it must be at times to be a young carer.  You have been given very good advice and information above by @Connie00 so I would look into that for further information and guidance.  Please keep in touch with us also as we are here too to support you and there are many lovely people on here, so any time you wish to chat please do so and let us know how you are getting on.  I hope you enjoy your time with us and wish you well!  If there is anything further we can help/support you with then please just let us know.  :smile:
