YOUNG carers shared their moving stories at the launch of a new conference.

The youngsters – some as young as 10 – all look after ill or disabled family members and wanted health professionals to learn from their experiences.

Doctors, social workers and youth group leaders were at the event in Sunderland’s Sandhill Centre, to hear from some of the 600 young carers supported by Sunderland Carers’ Centre.
