Supporting Young Carers

Description

A charity shows how it works with teachers to help them support the young carers in their schools, and young carers themselves talk about how the support helps them.

Jenny Frank and her team from The Children's Society lead a workshop training teachers on how they can assess and support young carers.

Initiatives and approaches discussed in the programme also include: young carers cards, the appointment of lead teachers, lunchtime support groups, mentoring programmes and dedicated training.

Young carers and experts also share their thoughts on what works in terms of support and why it makes a difference, in a programme which shares inspiring advice and best practice.
