Barnet Young Carers Team has been supporting Barnet schools in identifying and supporting young carers by promoting, providing guidance and support in implementing the Young Carers in Schools programme and Award.
The new leads on this initiative are Julia Conrado and Maivel Rodriguez, who will be the new Barnet Carers’ points of contact to continue to receive information, advice and support in relation to the identification and support of young carers in schools.
Through this link you can download some of their free materials for schools, designed to help you identify and support young carers at both primary and secondary schools.
If you wish to refer a student with caring responsibilities to their young carers service, please contact the young carers team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For any questions and enquiries about the Young Carers in Schools Programme or to order more schools' materials at no cost, please get in touch with either email@example.com or Julia.Conrado@barnetcarers.org
