In-school reviews with a Young Carer Support Worker

We can hold an in-school review which gives the young carer time to talk with a support worker in the familiar environment of school, the opportunity to talk openly about how they cope with their caring role, wellbeing, school and interests.

Also for the Young Carer to receive information on trips and activities to get involved with and help them to create a balance of juggling their caring role, education, socialising and interests.

Facilitate & Support School Groups

School groups are great to meet other Young Carers to share their experience of having a caring role, making new friends to attend Young Carer activities together.

To advocate for the Young Carer if they are struggling or have difficulties in school with learning or sometimes just socialising and fitting in with other students.

As a school if you are interested in having a Young Carers group please get in touch and we can support facilitate this.
