‘As with a lot of Lung’s work, the show is just the beginning. The company wants to have an impact on policy. With this in mind it has launched a campaign with the support of the Children’s Society, in the form of a series of pledges – drafted by the carers – that have been sent to MPs in all the areas visited in the development of the show. These include the introduction of a young carer identification card so they don’t have to constantly explain their situation if, for example, they’re late for school.’

Working with the E15 mothers meant commitment: “We had to get involved and not just be bystanders,” says Matt Woodhead. As a result, the company spent two years campaigning and going on protests with the Mums before producing the show.
