‘The sooner you can change their life course the better’: the time-framing of risks in relationship to being a young carer

In this article, we compare accounts given by young carers and specialist support workers about the riskiness of becoming a carer relatively early in life.

This temporal issue has become societally organised around concern about NEETs (young adults not in education, employment or training).
