Coping with the stress of being a young carer
Erin, 15, is an only child living with her parents in rural Wiltshire. She is a young carer, helping her dad care for her mum, who suffers from multiple sclerosis (MS). Erin was referred to Spurgeons by her school, when her parents mentioned they were worried that she was struggling with the stress of looking after her mum and becoming isolated from her friends. Through our support, Erin is now much more confident and is even helping and supporting other young carers.
