Across the UK, as many as one in five young people and children are thought to be caring for someone else. Should they be paid a fair wage for doing so?

This resource includes an article about carers from The Week Junior, and a set of activities based on the story that encourage pupils to consider the value of caring; how much they themselves may benefit from it; and what is involves as a career.
