It explores the perspectives of young people, parents/relatives, and service providers on the factors and changes in family life that led to the commencement of young people's caring trajectories within families in Tanzania and the UK. The chapter also analyses the wider structural and relational aspects that affect the socioeconomic, cultural, and policy context of young caregiving at the global, national, and local levels.
