Channel 4 documentary about Young Carers (9-14 yrs)

11 Nov 2008

Epilepsy Action has been approached by a documentary production company who are developing a film for Channel 4 focussing on young carers in the UK. The company are looking to work with children aged 9-14 years who are just about the only carer for another family member with epilepsy.

The aim is that the audience will be able develop a deep understanding of what their family’s life is like. The film is intended to be from the carer’s viewpoint, showing the realities of their every day life and what it is like to be in their position, looking after a parent or sibling.

If you are a parent of a child who meets this criteria, and this is something your family would like to be involved in, please email Keeley Eastwood, press officer, at press@epilepsy.org.uk, or call on 0113 210 8870 . Please note, we will require a parental consent form to be completed before we pass on any details to the production company.

Thank You
