Young Healthwatch Northamptonshire and Northamptonshire Young Carers Service want to find out about the emotional wellbeing of young carers locally.

Following on from the emotional wellbeing project with Northamptonshire Health and Care Partnership, in which Young Healthwatch Northamptonshire gathered the views and experiences of young people across the county on mental health and wellbeing services, Young Healthwatch now wants to find out specifically about the emotional wellbeing of young carers in Northamptonshire.

There are an estimated 700,000 young carers in the UK and being a young carer can affect a young person’s mental and physical health

In a survey by the Carers Trust, nearly half of young carers said that being a young carer made them feel stressed and 44% said it made them feel tired (Source). We want to find out more about our Young Carers in Northamptonshire so that we can ensure health and wellbeing services meet their needs.
