Matter - the online community for young adult carers

DescriptionMatter is a new online community set up by the Carers Trust charity for young adult carers to connect, share stories, and exchange trusted support. It is a safe online space to help 16–25-year-old carers feel less isolated from others in similar situations. Those who use the website can post updates, comment on and like each other's posts, and exchange private messages.

The website includes a 'timeline' where young adult carers can post, share and interact, as well as an information and advice section that covers four main topics:

- My future
- My health
- My rights
- My life

Matter was built for and by young adult carers and aims to be "part social network, part online advice centre".
