Abstract

The research sought to answer the following research questions: to what extent do different forms of social capital impact on current and future opportunities for young carers; to what extent can various agencies and significant others (including teachers, young carers' projects and friends) help young carers to identify and build on the types of social capital they identify as important to them.
