Young Carers - The Childrens Society
As part of The Children's Society, the Include Programme reaches out to young carers from all communities through our national and local programmes, helping voluntary and statutory services supporting young carers. We also campaign for change and promote best practice with central and local government and work in partnership with social workers, teachers and health care professionals to deliver solutions that consider the needs of the whole family.
We achieve these pursuits through complementary areas of work:
- Our Making a step change programme works nationally, focusing on helping local authorities develop whole family support for young carers and their families, specifically focusing on the Children and Families Act and the Care Act.
- Our Young Carers in Focus programme is developing an England-wide network of Young Carers Champions to advocate change locally and nationally for young carers and their families.
- Our innovative new programme Young Carers in Schools works with teachers and school professionals across England to meet the needs of young carers.
- Our focus on hidden groups of young carers provides tools to support refugee families, BME (black and minority ethnic) family carers and families affected by HIV.
