Young Carers: In Their Own Words


To mark Young Carers Awareness Day 2018, Headstart spoke to four young people from the Wolverhampton area about their experiences of being a young carer: how it makes them feel, how it affects them at school, and how Spurgeons UK support them.


The resilience and thoughtfulness of these young carers are truly inspiring. It is an amazing video that shows just how wonderful young carers are.
