    hello,

    Im not sure at the moment if me and my siblings are young carers because both my parents got injured (quite badly) a few weeks ago and we have to look after them (help them up/down stairs, go shopping, washing up, cleaning) as they cant.

    However, theyre meant to have revovered by next year so we’ll only have to look after them for a few months.

    Does this make us young carers and if it does, is there anything we have to do (tell school and stuff)?

    thanks :)

    tell the school, but make sure you tell them when your parents have recovered fully :) xx
