A proportion of young people across Europe carry out a significant role in caring for their ill and/or disabled family member. Even if there is a lack of data regarding the number of YCs in Europe, the phenomenon is raising attention in many countries. Young carers (YCs) are defined as “children and young persons under 18 years who provide or intend to provide care, assistance or support to another family member. They carry out significant or substantial caring tasks, often on a regular basis, and assume a level of responsibility that would usually be associated with an adult” (Becker, 2000 p. 378). These caring responsibilities may include practical tasks (such as housework), physical/ personal care (such as helping someone dress) and emotional support, contribute to family budget, helping to give medicine, or helping someone communicate (Eurocarers, 2017).
