Engaging and Empowering Young Carers: Shifting the Focus for Public Awareness and Intervention in Canada

University Health Network

Do you currently or in the past have you supported and cared for an ill family member? 

University Health Network is looking to speak to anyone aged between 16 and 25 to share their experiences and thoughts on being a young carer. If you are between 16 and 25, we want to hear about your experience in either a one-time interview or as part of a focus group. 

‘Caring’ is defined as providing a minimum of 5 hours of unpaid care per week (on average) for a minimum of 1 year and might include (but is not limited to) attending appointments, administering medication, providing physical care and emotional support, translating, and parenting (i.e., functioning as a parent to a sibling). Participants will receive a gift card.
