(Reference) About the current situation of young carers in Yamanashi Prefecture and efforts to support them
Last year, for the first time in Japan, Yamanashi Prefecture conducted a nationwide survey of all children from the 6th grade of elementary school to the 3rd grade of high school, and found that about 1 in 16 children answered that they have a family member who takes care of them. On the other hand, about 1 in 66 children answered that they were “young carers”, revealing that many children are not aware that they are young carers.
