Definition of a Carer
A carer is anyone, including children and adults who look after a family member, partner or friend who rely on their regular and ongoing help as a result of their illness, frailty, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction and cannot cope without their support. The care they give is unpaid (except for Carers Allowance etc). This is inclusive of both adult and young carers.
Young carers are young people under 18 years old who provide unpaid care to a family member or friend who has a physical or mental health condition, disability or addiction. Carers in Hertfordshire’s Young Carers Service supports carers under 18 and their families to make sure their caring responsibilities don’t stop them from having the same opportunities, and social life, that other young people enjoy carers.
