Young Adult Carers and Employment
In 2013, Carers Trust commissioned the University of Nottingham to undertake research to examine the experiences and aspirations of young adult carers with regards to school, further and higher education, and work.
A total of 362 people viewed the survey; and responses from 295 young adult carers aged 14–25 were analysed. This is the second in a series of reports to be published across 2013 and 2014 looking at issues related to school, college and university, employment, those not in work or education, and gender. In this report we explore the experiences and perceptions of carers who are in employment, or not in employment, education or training (NEET) (n=77).
