Is there a young carer in your family? The Royal Photographic Society and Action for Children invite them to get creative and take part in their ‘A young carer – life in focus’ project, where they will learn new things and get the chance to show them what everyday life looks like for them.

Photography is a great way of sharing thoughts and emotions, capturing snapshots of interests and experiences, and showing the things that make young carers unique. The Royal Photographic Society and Action for Children is keen for young carers to get behind the lense and show them what’s important to them in their everyday life.

The project involves taking part in a series of exciting, playful online workshops with professional photographer Jo Bradford, where the young carer will learn tips and tricks to produce their own images using anything from a mobile phone to the camera on a laptop. They are then encouraged to submit their photographs to the organisers.

The young carer does not have to be photographer or already have ideas to join the workshops. But they will need to come with the enthusiasm to learn something new and have fun along the way.

The project is due to end September 2022.
