Coronavirus: Life as a young carer under lockdown

There are estimated to be 700,000 young carers in England.

Twelve-year-old Finlay cares for his mum, while 15-year-old Danielle helps her mum look after her siblings while her step-dad works long hours.

They describe how their lives have changed during the coronavirus pandemic.

The young carers are supported by a group in Salford run by the charities: Gaddum, The Lowry and the Who Cares Campaign.
