Salford asks the Lords: Who Cares?

The UK tour of a play about young carers in Salford drew to a close last week with a special performance at The House of Lords in Westminster.

Who Cares featured interviews with young carers about their lives and seeks to help identify ‘hidden’ young carers in society.

MPs took to Twitter to praise the performance, with Salford and Eccles MP, Rebecca Long-Bailey, saying she was “absolutely knocked sideways by performance. What a strong and inspiring group of young people doing Salford proud.”

Worsley and Eccles South MP, Barbara Keeley, who was interviewed as part of the research for the show, tweeted she was “so proud of young carers from Salford” while Oldham West and Royton MP, Jim McMahon said it was an “extremely moving and an inspirational performance.”
