YOUNG CARERS: Are professionals, campaigners and politicians in the right frame of mind?

A year on from the Care Act and the Children & Families Act, Tom Magner investigates the impact of the new legal duty on local councils to identify and support young carers.

Highlighted by their experiences, 'Carers World Investigates' examines school leaders and social workers and hears from the police, the medical profession and a leading community rights lawyer on the reality of the two acts.

The programme includes political reaction across parties to the issue and includes an exclusive interview with Health Minister Alistair Burt.

If you feel that this programme has struck a chord with you, want to tell us what you think on the issue of young carers or have any other experience, issue or story that you want to tell us about, please contact the Carers World Radio team on:
