Young carers are now being supported in school through our fantastic Young Carers in Schools project.
We can support young carers in school by offering:
- School assemblies led by one of our Project Workers who will deliver a whole school/year group presentation about what it means to be a young carer
- Staff training for school teachers to enable staff to recognise who may be a young carer and how to support them within school
- The opportunity to set up a young carers support group in the school. These groups will provide activities and group discussions to help with any difficulties/worries young carers may have.
