Siblings as young carers

Siblings as young carers

This month we’re talking about siblings as young carers. Here at YoungSibs we want to do a shout out to all of you who are helping to look after your brothers and sisters who have a disability, illness or condition. You do a great job! It’s also really important to look after your own mental health and wellbeing so we’ve got some great information about how to look after yourself and what you can do if you feel worried or anxious.

It can be great doing fun things with your brother or sister but maybe you feel as though you have to look after your brother or sister too much and don’t know here to turn for help. Why not chat to other siblings in our chat forum or send your question to our sibling advisor? Tell us what’s important to you as a sibling!
