Recognising our Young Carers

21 March 2023

Wednesday 15th March saw Young Carers Action Day marked nationwide and we wanted to make sure we recognised our young carers too!


Young Carers Action Day is all about raising public awareness of young carers and young adult carers and seeking to bring about change for them and their families.


Carers Trust said ‘Young carers and young adult carers tell us repeatedly that health and wellbeing are really important to them, but all too often their caring role leaves them feeling overwhelmed. This is particularly the case when they are juggling their caring role with schoolwork.’


To support and recognise our carers we held a celebration breakfast and an arts and crafts morning in school, a chance for carers in our school to take some time out and socialise.


We also shared key information in form time and around school to raise awareness of Young Carers and how we can support them.


The morning was enjoyed by all.
