YCNet is a website and online support service for young people aged 18 and under in the UK, who help to look after someone in their family who has an illness, disability, drug/alcohol addiction or mental health condition.
This is a place where young carers can find other young people in a similar position, chat to each other, share their stories and hear about each others’ experiences in a safe environment.
As well as the support and friendship young carers can find with each other in our online community, they also have access to help and advice via the Agony Aunt pages, email and chat sessions with our Online Support team.
The team also runs a programme of web chats with special guests who drop in around once a month to chat to young carers.
