Young Carers

Young Carers are under the age of 18 and provide unpaid help and support for someone with a long-term physical disability, mental health condition, or problems with drugs / alcohol. 


If you feel you are caring for someone at home, a parent or a sibling with a disability then please talk to your Class Teacher or Mrs Playfoot and we can offer support in school.
