The work of those caring for others has been celebrated this month. National Carers Week ran from 11 to 17 June and although it is hard to believe, there are 700,000 young carers living in the UK, looking after other members of their family. Many of the local young carers are supported by Brentford FC Community Sports Trust.
Ali Umar, a young carer, chatted to Ealing News Extra about the benefit of the Trust’s Young Carers project and how he now supports other young carers. You can read the full article and video here.
