Having to care: above: the Prime Minister holds a Babygro printed with “Team Spurgeons”, as he meets young carers from the Spurgeons charity at Downing Street last week. Among them is Victoria Richbell-Davis, who is 12, and cares for her mother (below), who is blind and has impaired mobility. A BBC survey says that one in 12 schoolchildren has caring responsiblities.
