Additionally, ‘[a]s caregivers, young people do more domestic work and have greater responsibility for tasks like cooking, fetching water and wood than other young people, because they live in a household with a sick grandmother, parent or sibling’ (p 100). A continuum of young caregiving The existing research evidence from both the North and South indicates that many young carers perform more tasks that are Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (such as shopping and housework), and spend longer on them, in addition to the more care-related Activities of Daily Living (such as intimate and personal care).

Research to date has not explored the reasons why some young people experience significant difficulties at school or elsewhere in their lives, while others do not, nor is there any certainty that it is children’s caregiving responsibilities that account solely for any problems encountered. While research to date has helped to chart and describe the broad landscape of young carers’ experiences and outcomes, the research evidence is still under-developed in terms of critical analysis of the differential impacts on children of caregiving and whether it is caring per se or other factors such as poverty that lead to particular outcomes (for example, low educational attainment).

There is evidence from some African countries, for example, that school enrolment has fallen dramatically, sometimes by a third, as children drop out of school to provide care for sick family members (Steinberg et al, 2002). The growing research evidence from a number of Sub-Saharan African countries suggests that there are some important differences between what many African young carers do and other children, including those children who regularly perform household and caring tasks as part of their everyday responsibilities to their families: ‘Even within an African sociological and anthropological context, what young people like Doris [young carer] do, can be considered more than a child’s “normal” range of tasks and burdens of responsibility’ (Robson et al, 2006: 96).
