Supporting Young Carers in Schools
Having the responsibility of balancing caring duties and school is not an easy task, Carers Trust have launched a resource to promote the early identification and support of young carers in schools.
“Children with caring responsibilities have a right to fully benefit from their schooling, their friendships and the opportunities life has to offer. We hope this resource will highlight the importance of supporting young carers and provide the practical starting point to ensure that schools embed a clear framework for the identification and support of young carers and their families, which is reflected in the schools policies, practice, training and communication with parents.” For more information and to download the resource click here.
The Mental Health Foundation have massive prizes up for grabs for their raffle, including a Samsung Netbook, Hotel Stay & Spa Treatment and Co-op vouchers just to name a few. The tickets cost £2 each and a sheet of five tickets costs £10.
