The results of a Carers Trust Wales survey into the impact of Coronavirus on young carers aged 12 to 17 and young adult carers aged 18 to 25 was published in July 2020. They point to a steep decline in the mental health and wellbeing of thousands of young people across Wales who provide unpaid care at home for family members or friends.
