On Tuesday 16th November, the BBC will be doing a full day of news on young carers.
This will be the first time that the BBC has done a co-ordinated multimedia campaign on just one topic (young carers) broadcasting across all news outlets (i.e. on radio, TV, children’s news programmes and adult news programmes). They will be launching new research findings.
Danni Manzi from the Princess Royal trust for carers has been advising the BBC on this. The Trust’s policy team will be issuing statements to the governments in response (along with members of the National Young Carers Coalition).
