Young carers need support too

Molly (not her real name) was just 10 years old when she started caring for her mum and step-dad, both of whom had chronic health conditions.

Her caring responsibilities left her with little time for school work or spending time with friends. Find out in the video on this page how Molly's life changed when a teacher referred her to The Children's Society, and she was able to meet other young carers.
