Stories Catapulted into Maturity There are over 175,000 young carers in the UK. They have been catapulted into maturity and responsibility by caring for someone with a physical or learning disability, illness or substance dependency at home. And there may be many more that we don't yet know about. Just who are young carers? What brings tears and smiles to their lives and where is the support? This film, made by young carers, tries to answer those questions. This film was made by the Abigal, Hamza, Efia, Laroz, Leith, Phoebe and Georgia, a group of young people that access Family Action Young Carers group Islington.
