Right now, there are 800,000 children in the UK who can be defined as young carers. Because of illness, disability or addiction, they juggle their schoolwork with looking after a family member or friend who cannot cope without support. On this episode, Nia catches up with Rose and Natalia; two inspirational young carers who found themselves looking after their mums at a really early age, and who have overcome barriers to study at university. Ceri Nicolle from First Campus Reaching Wider also talks to Nia about the opportunities available for young carers looking to extend their education.
