Young Carers

Young Carers are defined as children who:

  • Are under the age of 21?
  • Take on extra responsibilities at home because someone in their family is disabled, has been poorly for a long time, might struggle with their mental health or has issues with taking alcohol or drugs?
  • May feel they miss out on things after school / college and at weekends because they help someone at home?
  • Have to take on extra jobs around the home like cooking, cleaning, washing, helping with medication or looking after siblings because the adult in the home struggles to do these tasks because they are ill?
  • Worry about the person they look after; making them feel stressed and anxious at times?
  • Sometimes feel a bit overwhelmed with all the things they have to juggle?

We work closely with the Young Carers in our Broad Oak family to support them emotionally and academically. We have committed to the Young Carers promise.
