Help for young carers

A young carer is someone age five up to their 18th birthday who regularly provides care and emotional support to a family member (parent, brother or sister, grandparent or other relative) who is physically or mentally ill, disabled or misuses alcohol or drugs. 

Young carers regularly help to care for a family member and we offer support to make sure the level of the caring they are doing does not have a negative effect on them .

We carry out young carers’ assessments, if asked, to find out what would help. 

The assessment will take place in the school and tries to identify any problems, understanding the need for physical and emotional well-being, social and educational support.
