This Young Carers Awareness Day, the Honeypot Children’s Charity are highlighting the hours children spend every day as part of their caring duties.
Other children have this time to use on their homework, hobbies, or just relaxing after a long day of school and chatting to friends.
Young carers can spend over 30 hours a week providing care for a loved one. And while the job they do is so important to keep their family together, it’s so important to raise awareness so young carers can get the support they need.
Jaiden, aged 12, is just one of many young carers across the country. In our film, Young Carers… It’s About Time! Jaiden showcases how the errands and jobs he does over the day add up.
