There are seven-hundred-thousand young carers in the UK.

Often people don't realise the important and demanding role they have helping a parent or relative every day.

A special programme for Children in Need showed how difficult it can be for young people who care for their mums.

Tom and Antonia-Rae were featured in that film and came in to speak to Hayley about the challenges of their lives.
