Carers: Young People

Volume 478: debated on Monday 23 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what estimate he has made of the number of young people in London with caring responsibilities for family members. (212622)

We estimate that there are around 20,500 young carers in London. This estimate is derived from analysis of the data in the 2001 census, which is the most recent information that we have on the number of young carers in England and Wales.
