Young Carers in Schools

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.

For more information, email our Young Carers in Schools Project Lead Kim Bunce or call 01296 392711.
