Young Carers Award

Young Carers

The 2011 Census identified 177,918 young carers in England and Wales (last available Census figures). Some estimates suggest that now as many as one in five school children are young carers (University of Nottingham 2018), with this number increasing during the COVID-19 pandemic. As a school community we want to help our young carers with the additional challenges they may face.


If you believe a student is a Young Carer and is not getting support or you have any concerns then please contact Miss E Warrington, Mrs L Foden or Miss F Schofield at school on 0161 549 7300.
