Young Carers in Schools programme

Last Updated 31/01/2019


Young Carers in Schools is an exciting England-wide initiative that equips schools to support young carers and awards good practice.

Run jointly by Carers Trust and The Children’s Society Young Carers in Focus partners, we are improving the identification and support of young carers in schools across the country, so that they get the help they need. This initiative is funded by The Queen’s Trust and The Big Lottery Fund.

By taking part in the Young Carers in Schools programme, schools will be able to show that they are meeting the needs of a particularly vulnerable group of pupils (specifically mentioned in Ofsted’s School Inspection Handbook).
