Meet six inspiring young carers

There are an estimated 700,000 young carers across the UK with one in 12 young carers in England spending more than 15 hours a week looking after a parent or sibling. 

This year we have teamed up with six young carers, supported by cash raised through Red Nose Day, to give you a unique insight into their lives. Comic Relief funds organisations, mainly through the Carers Trust, who help the most vulnerable young carers to cope with, and take a break from, their caring responsibilities. They provide them opportunities to spend time with their peers, do fun extra-curricular activities, access one-to-one support and advice and pursue employment and educational courses.

To see more from Ahmed, Alex, Jade, Jaiden, Riyad and Saskia check out their vlogs on YouTube.

Every pound raised this Red Nose Day goes to causes we know you care about. See for yourself how your fundraising impacts millions in the UK and Africa.
