Across Europe, young carers and their need for support receive limited attention in the media, policy and empirical research, even though, similar to adult carers, they also provide care to ill family members. The Delphi study, a qualitative research methodology, which provides the focus for this article, had the overall aim of exploring existing successful strategies to support YCs. Compared to YCs, even less is known about adolescent young carers, a group that is in a critical life transition phase.
The study forms part of the Me-We project, funded by the EU Horizon 2020 Programme.
