When you are looking after someone with cancer, you might not be sure how to get information about cancer, or about being a young carer. When you search the internet, you can often end up on unhelpful websites that give you no information.
This is why some young carers start up their own support groups, often through school or college, or a young carers’ service. It’s a good way to share information, and to help each other cope with the different feelings you are having. There is always someone to talk to, including other young people who are going through something similar to you and who will understand.
