Understanding the need of young carers of stroke survivors (16-18yrs)

Hi Everyone,

A research team at the University of Nottingham would like to talk to young people aged 16-18yrs old about their experiences of helping to look after a loved one who is recovering from stroke.

What is the study about?
Research indicates there is a lack of the relevant and specific information that young carers of stroke survivors need to provide support as effectively as they would wish.

Due to the limited sources of support, this project wants to explore what additional support young carers of stroke survivors need, as they begin to transition into adulthood.

This will support understanding of what support and information needs to be created to support young carers.

What will this Involve?

This will involve an interview over video call of no more than one hour.

This will include questions about the person the participant cares for, as well as the caring duties they carry out, and how that affects them. They will also provide information about where to find support for young carers.

There is no payment for participation but the team will provide certificates demonstrating participation as a thank you if helpful to people taking part.

Who can take part?

  • 16 to 18yr olds
  • Living with and providing care for a stroke survivor
  • Based in the UK
  • Fluent in English
