Event description

Description

Target Audience: Senior Leadership team, Pastoral or Safeguarding leads, general Teaching Staff, Parent and Family Support Advisers in Primary, Middle and Secondary schools.(up to 2 places per school).

Why attend: Every school will have Young Carers pupils within its community. Often the Young Carers circumstances and caring role remains hidden at school. Without support at the right time, Young Carers are more likely to underachieve in their education, and long-term face more vulnerabilities compared to their peers.

Aim of the Course: To have a greater awareness across Somerset schools of the issues and needs facing Young Carers and how your school can best support these.

Outcome: Delegates will

  • Explore the local context for Young Carers and their families

  • Explore the development and educational challenges facing Young Carers

  • Hear from and interact with Young Carers about their school experiences

  • Look at best practice and what work is taking place in Somerset schools currently

  • Be better informed of what support is available locally for Young carers and where to go for this.

A Young Carer is someone under 18 who regularly helps look after someone in their family, or a friend, who is ill, disabled or misuses drugs or alcohol.

We really want schools to help us when we need it” Somerset Young Carer Forum

“Caring can be tough, I have been caring since I was 10 and I don’t think anyone at my school really understood why I was late sometimes or couldn’t always concentrate on my lessons” 15 year old Young Carer

“Once a teacher asked why I kept looking at the clock, It was because I was desperate to get home so I could check my Mum was o.k” 14 year old Young Carer

“I have a really nice teacher who asks me how I am and if I am worried about my Dads health” 8 year old Young Carer
