Young Carers

Are you a Young Carer?

As many as one in 12 students look after someone at home who is ill, disabled, or has a mental health condition or addiction problem.

Some help by:

  • Cleaning, cooking, shopping
  • Sorting our medication
  • Looking after brothers or sisters
  • Supporting someone emotionally or physically

“You might need help in lessons, to enjoy school and not worry about the people that you care for” - A student who looks after someone at school

If you help to look after someone at home, don’t miss out.

Whether you are looking for advice, support or just someone to talk to get in touch with Mrs Fenton in Learning support or Sam White in the Library.


Young Carers Group - We meet every Monday during PC time in the Bistro with Sam White.
