Hidden young carers | Saul Becker | TEDxUoN 

In this TEDx talk, Saul takes us on a journey to explore and understand the hidden contributions that children make to family care; the outcomes that caring roles and responsibilities can have on children’s education, psycho-social development, health and well-being; and what can and is being done to help young carers in those countries that have identified them as a group who need recognition, support, services and interventions. He links this research journey to his personal experiences of being a young carer in his own childhood.
