Four young ambitious disabled people are cared for by unemployed people their own age. The new carers struggle as they help their employers face challenges away from the home.
There are currently around 300,000 young disabled people in the UK who rely on carers for their daily needs. For many of these ambitious young people, finding the right carer is the difference between achieving their ambitions or a life unfulfilled. But as a young disabled person in Britain your options are limited, as the majority of people working in care are over 40 years old.
But with three quarters of a million young people under 24 currently looking for work, could the solution being staring us in the face?
This groundbreaking series explores what happens when four young ambitious disabled people put all their care needs in the hands of unemployed people their own age.

In the final programme, the new carers are pushed further out of their comfort zones as they help their employers face real-world challenges away from the home. With the possibility of a real job offer at the end there's a lot at stake for everyone.
