Young Carers In Schools - A Toolkit for Local Authorities

Young Carers In Schools - A Toolkit for Local Authorities

Legislation into Practice: Making the Children and Families Act 2014 and the Care Act 2014 a Reality for Young Carers

A resource for local  authorities working with schools to identify and support young carers. 

This resource supports the case for the effective and economic ways that local young carers services offer both preventative and responsive support for young carers and their families. 

It sets out the case to include the Young Carers in Schools Programme in all aspects of educational support and how this would support local authorities to ensure they fulfil their statutory duties as set out in the Children and Families Act 2014 and the Care Act 2014. 

Most importantly it will ensure positive outcomes for young carers and their families.
