    M460 - Young Carers Motion 2018, Joecphillips seconded by JellyMilkThis House urges the Government to do more to support young carers across the country. Currently there are an estimated 700,000 young carers in the uk some as young as 5 years old and a survey conducted reported that almost half of them were suffering from stress because of the role.

    Being a young carer can negatively impact on carers academic performance and social.

    It’s time for the government to take further steps to ensure that these kids have the same opportunities socially and academically as their friends and the opportunity to seek support when they need it while knowing their loved one has support needed.

    No. "Take further steps" is way too vague and has clearly been enough to convince me that this motion isn't worth supporting.

    I would like to see more detailed plans, agree with the sentiment though. Nah for now.

    The Bill doesn't explain what should be done to support young carers and is very vague.
    I'll abstain for now until further improvement.
