?  About our Ebooks


'I warmly welcome this important new resource for young carers. For much too long young carers have been a 'hidden army', often misunderstood whilst struggling to support a much- loved family member, maintain their education and look to the future. That future can seem very frightening, but this book offers not only a range of practical information for young carers and those who support them. It reminds us of the importance of relationships and peer support and the real possibility of a good and valued life as a young carer.'
- Dame Philippa Russell, Vice-President, Carers UK

'Can I Tell You About Being a Young Carer? is packed with important insights into the range of struggles that children with caring responsibilities will relate to. Presented in a gentle, positive and accessible way it will be helpful to the many children with caring roles, their friends, family and those who support them.'
- Daniel Phelps, The University of Winchester,
