#SupportNotSympathy Campaign

Young carers are asking for #SupportNotSympathy

In June 2020 Carers Trust Wales surveyed 366 carers aged between 12 and
25 to understand their experiences of living and caring during the pandemic. The results highlighted in the report show that young carers want and need:

  • Support for emotional wellbeing and mental health
  • Breaks from their caring role
  • Help to balance caring, education and employment
  • Support to stay fit and healthy
