Every day across the country an army of unsung child heroes faces extraordinary challenges that most adults would struggle to cope with. They are Britain’s 700,000 young carers.
Over the course of several months these young carers allowed our cameras to follow them and their families as they deal with situations most adults would struggle to cope with. All four look after mothers who need continual care – from a life-threatening condition to mental health problems and blindness.

They all have to find a way to balance their caring roles with the need to still have and enjoy a childhood.
