Sample text

The term ‘young carer’ does not adequately convey the multiple meanings and experiences of these children – where caregiving may be only one dimension of their experience of living in a household affected by HIV/AIDS. At the same time, however, the lack of recognition of young people’s caring responsibilities hides young people’s particular contributions, roles and responsibilities in families affected by HIV/AIDS. There is little recognition of the distinct role of children with caring responsibilities in Sub-Saharan Africa, particularly the extent, nature and outcomes of their caring tasks, and there are few services specifically designed to support them.

That world includes our bodies, our selves, and our environment, all of which we seek to interweave in a complex, life-sustaining web. (Tronto and Fisher, cited in Tronto, 1993: 103) From this perspective, care is an ongoing process, ‘both a practice and a disposition’, that involves ‘taking the concerns and needs of the other as the basis for action’ (Tronto, 1993: 105). Care is culturally defined, varying according to different cultures at different times and in different places (Tronto, 1993: 103).

Most children do not become young carers because there are other family members available to provide care, or because families receive social care or health-related support or services, thus reducing the need for children to take on caring roles and reducing in some cases the negative outcomes that can be associated with substantial and regular caregiving. The UK 2001 Census shows that 175,000 children provide some level of unpaid care to other family members. 1 shows the number and proportion of children who provide unpaid care in the four countries that constitute the UK.
