Military Young Carers
Research demonstrates that young carers in military families may be caring for a parent/sibling who has returned from combat injured, both physically or emotionally, or they may be caring for the parent who has health problems while their other parent is away with the military. Additionally, a child or young carer may have to provide emotional support to a parent who has begun the transition from the Armed Forces back in to civilian life. Furthermore, many military families do not live within close proximity to their extended family, which has the increased potential to limit extra support.
