About This Publication

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.

The Really Useful Book of Learning and Earning for Young Adult Carers (second edition) is aimed at young adults (aged 16–25) in England who are looking after somebody else. The book is full of useful information about looking after your health and wellbeing, job hunting, housing, health services, learning, working and volunteering, and money management. As well as information and advice, the book has activities to help readers think positively, identify skills and skills gaps, and action plan. It is also a ‘one stop resource’ which signposts readers to a range of websites and help lines for more information.
