Victoria Cares – Young Carers Social Media campaign

Date: 11th July 2011
Category: Family Environment and Alternative Care

Spurgeons, a children's charity based in England, recently ran an interesting social media campaign to tell, in real time, the true story of a 12 year old carer called Victoria.

It shows how Victoria juggles her school work and homework with her caring responsibilities, showcasing the difficult decisions that young carers make every day, including whether to attend the school prom.

It also covers everyday challenges such as getting homework done and what happens when the carer is sick.
