Five people creating a radio broadcast at this year's Young Carers Festival

This year's Young Carers Festival, which ran from 28-30 June, was a hit. We're sharing a few photos from the day - you can also find more on our Facebook page.

At the Young Carers in Focus website, you can find some great stories by young carers who were at the festival. Please take a look.

Video, an interactive report and more about young carers

The children's minister, Edward Timpson, recorded a video message to young carers. It was shown at the Young Carers Festival but is for all young carers and their families. Please take a look.

Over the last several months we've run several great blogs by and about young carers.

Learn more about this year's Young Carers Festival in our press release.

Have a look at our interactive report about young carers' lives and the latest census data.
