Singer, songwriter and actress Jade Ewen’s story and photograph are part of ‘Hidden’, a compelling exhibition of photos and stories of some of the more than 166,000 young carers.

Being a young carer has made me a more empathic and perceptive person that I might not have been otherwise. I can relate to people in a way that I think is down to having to care for my parents.

I would say to any children or teenagers who are caring for someone that you can’t care for your loved ones if you don’t care for yourself. Don’t feel guilty about getting the support you need. That’s why organisations like The Children's Society and the Young Carers in Focus project are so vital.’
