The Speaker in this video is:

Roy MacGregor

From Fife Young Carers.

This video is 10 minutes in length.

Fife Young Carers is a registered charity which support Young Carers throughout Fife.

What is a Young Carer?

A Young Carer is a child or young person under the age of 18 years, whose life has been affected by their significant caring role for a family member who may suffer from one of the following:

  • Long Term illness

  • Mental ill health

  • HIV/AIDS

  • Physical disability

  • Learning disability

  • Drug or Alcohol misuse

Being a Young Carer can be very lonely. Often, time is so taken up doing tasks that there is no time for friendships. Sometimes when parents have illnesses such as HIV/AIDS, mental health illness or siblings who have a learning disability it can lead to feelings of isolation. Young Carers may want to keep these things to themselves for a number of reasons, perhaps being worried about bullying.
