This chapter draws on the concept of resilience in examining the effects of children's care work for individual children and young people, focusing on their emotional well being, health and welfare, personal development, aspirations and priorities for the future, as well as the effects on family relationships. It notes that there has been growing recognition that not all young carers experience negative outcomes, and some researchers suggest that a resilience perspective may help to explain individual differences in coping with adversity.

Keywords:   resilience, children's care work, emotional well being, health and welfare, personal development, aspirations, family relationships, resilience perspective, adversity
