Young carers needed for documentary

Sanjit writes:

Carers Lewisham have been approached by a film maker who would like to document five 16 year olds from South London for the duration of the long summer holiday (June-Sept).

The film-maker is aware that young carers' spare time is often limited and feels it is important to document that with the responsibility of being a carer - freedom, personal choice and leisure time have very different implications for young carers.

The filming will require a maximum investment of one day a week for eight to ten weeks.

The film-maker will be working independently, so the film crew will be small and there are no fixed filming agenda. Personal stories guided by the young people are at the heart of this project.

If you're interested in taking part, please call Philip at Carers Lewisham on 0208 699 8686.
