Family Carers Ireland Young Carers Service

The term ‘young carers’ refers to children and young people under the age of 18 whose lives are affected in some significant way by the care needs of another family or household member due to their illness, disability, mental health difficulties or problems with drugs or alcohol misuse, and who provide care, or help to provide care, to that person.


We offer a range of free services, including online and in-person groups, one-to-one support, counselling, workshops & training, events and activities, respite activity breaks, and programmes – all to help young carers succeed in school and beyond.

No one should have to care alone.
