She also played Miss Scatcherd in the 1970 film of Jane Eyre, Eileen Clancy in the 1975 TV series Looking For Clancy, Dot Wilmington in the TV series Hazell, and appeared in On Giant's Shoulders for the BBC in 1979.
She played the long-running role of gossipy yet lovable Sadie Hargreaves Lloyd in soap opera Family Affairs. Sadie, a former theatre actress turned barmaid, was a key figure in the show from 1998 until 2005, making her one of the show's longest serving characters.
Young previously acted in soap opera Coronation Street in the early 1960s, 1980s and 1990s. In February 2007, she rejoined the cast of Coronation Street, an old friend of Rita Sullivan called Doreen Fenwick until December that year.
In 2008, she made a guest appearance in an episode of the long-running BBC comedy series Last of the Summer Wine, "Get Out of That, Then", as Bobby Ball's wife Florrie. Following the departure of Kathy Staff from the series in 2008, Young joined the regular cast as Nora Batty's sister, Stella.
