Supporting Young Carers in Schools

On Thursday 14th January 2021 we hosted the third of our ‘Inviting the Experts…’ series of webinars. This is a series of CPD sessions which we have set up recognising the incredible work that is going on in schools right now in particularly challenging circumstances and the need for school staff to have access to informative, practical advice from experts.

The session was delivered by Rebecca Rolfe from The Children’s Society, who provided an insightful overview of the challenges facing Young Carers and the actions schools can take to support them. Here are some key items from the session:


Who are Young Carers?

What do Young Carers do?

What challenges do Young Carers face?

What can schools do to support Young Carers?
