Children: Young Carers

Young Carers: 2019-2020
Young Carers are children and young people, up to the age of 18, whose lives are affected by looking after someone. This may include physical or learning disabilities, long term illness, mental health illness, or drug or alcohol challenges. This may be a parent, brother, sister or other family member.
The care they give maybe physical and /or emotional. These responsibilities may include:
  • Personal care
  • Housework
  • Lifting
  • Shopping
  • Giving Medication
  • Looking after brothers or sisters
  • Cheering them up
  • Helping fill in forms
  • Reminding them to do things

At Holy Family Primary, we want Young Carers to be recognised, feel supported and know they have someone to speak to if they need help. We also have a Young Carers Policy.

If you feel your child may be a Young Carer please let us know so that we can help. The support that may be offered depends on the need but could include:
  • Telephone, text or e-mail support
  • Time out, away from home with a Young Carers Support Worker
  • Activities in small groups during school holidays
  • Short breaks and residential trips
  • Weekly/fortnightly groups mixing with other young carers of the same age.
  • Referral to other projects or groups
  • Possible funding for individual activities
