‘Hidden 2015’: Matt and Becky put the Focus on Young Carers

From 11-22nd February 2015, Matt and Becky, members of VOYCE PG, featured in a national photography exhibition highlighting the invisibility of young carers, who often remain ‘Hidden’. Having taken part in a photo shoot with Max Alexander (an award winning photographer and former young carer) against the backdrop of Sheffield City landscapes, their photographs are a testament to young carers in the City.

‘Hidden’, organised by the Children’s Society, was a ‘compelling exhibition that tells the story of England’s young carers’. There are an estimated 166,000 young carers in England, however in reality this number is thought to be significantly higher. ‘Hidden’ gave young carers the opportunity to share their own stories and personal journeys as young carers, highlighting the admirable and compassionate role they play every day that is so often overlooked.

We hope you enjoy these stunning photographs and the stories that Matt and Becky have to share alongside these.
