A Young Carer is a child who is under 18 who are caring unpaid for a family member or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or addiction problems. This could be a sibling who may have additional needs. They often take on practical and or emotional caring responsibilities that might normally be expected of an adult.
We identify and support Young Carers in our school by giving them a named Key Worker they can speak to. Our Young Carers lead and Key Worker is Mrs Danielle Callis. We offer a range of support for our Young Carers and their families including:
- A weekly club for Young Carers
- Access for our Young Carer Key Worker for help and support
- Access to our Parent Support Advisor
- An additional education visit at the end of the school year to reward them for all of the care they give
If you think your child is a Young Carer please contact our Head Teacher or Young Carer lead so we can discuss fully to support we can offer.
More information regarding Young Carers in Lincolnshire can be found here.
