Young Carers

The Carers Trust is committed to providing opportunities for young and adult carers under 25 years to achieve and develop their future aspirations and goals through their Young Carers Futures programme.

The Young Carers Futures hub page can be found here for students and families to access.

In school, our Young Carers Champions are Miss Machin and Mrs Jones. We acknowledge that Young Carers often do not think of themselves as carers and it is important that they are recognised and get the appropriate support. Barnardo's Action With Young Carers works with young carers and young adult carers who are caring for an ill or disabled adult. Some illnesses and disabilities can be seen, others cannot.  Barnardo's can be contacted on 0151 228 4455 and further details can be found in this leaflet.
