A new report from Ofsted has concluded that children who have caring responsibilities are often "unidentified, unsupported and without a voice." Research for the study was carried out in November and December last year, with 50 young carers who were responsible for either disabled parents or siblings being interviewed.

The full report - Supporting Young Carers: Identifying, Assessing and Meeting the Needs of Young Carers and their Families - can be downloaded in either Word or PDF format from this link. For an insight into the life of a young carer, take a look at this BBC article.
