Working with Young Adult Carers

Working with Young Adult Carers has been written to support people working with young adult carers. It is aimed at staff with little or no knowledge of working with this specific group. The guidance aims to provide staff with basic information about working effectively with young adult carers. The central message of this book is that young adult carers need appropriate support to be able to make decisions and to enable them to live their lives as other young adults do. The guidance provides information about issues affecting young adult carers that practitioners should be aware of, and the specific contribution that different groups of practitioners can make to supporting young adult carers.
