A MILE IN OUR SHOES / MFC Study Support Centre

Winner of The European Youth Excellence Award in Filmmaking 2013

The average age of a young carer in the UK is 12. This is a poignant and moving tribute to those many young carers tending to parents or siblings or both. They manage the domestic needs of a household as well as the physical needs of those they are caring for. They sometimes care for more than one family member with ailments ranging from autism to muscular dystrophy. With a constant lack of understanding from the rest of the world, no wonder there is little time for sleep let alone a social life
