Hidden within every community

Across Scotland’s communities, some 17,000 children and young people are in the position of having to care for an adult with a long term illness, disability or addiction problem.  These young carers are often invisible to public agencies and as a result have to carry the stresses and strains of their vital role completely alone. Some local support groups do exist but nowhere near enough.  Community arts group, Theatre Nemo, have helped a group of young carers to make a film highlighting their plight. It premiers in Glasgow this Friday. 



See Me…. I’m a young carer

A film designed to generate open discussions in classrooms  and beyond.

On October 10th we will be hosting the first public viewing of our recent film which was made in collaboration with the GAMH young carers group, funded by SEE ME…. this film seeks to reduce instances of stigma and promote services to young people who may be struggling to cope on their own.

At the event we will take the audience through the same classroom process that the film was designed for, this project is currently in a test phase and we will be asking the audience to contribute suggestions for improving the learning experience.
