Supporting young carers in schools in Wales
Designed with teachers and schools staff, the Young Carers in Schools Step-by-step Guide for Leaders, Teachers and Non-teaching Staff, helps make the identification and support of young carers in schools in primary and secondary schools in Wales as easy as possible. Set out in ten clear steps, the tools accompanying the guide are available for you to download and adapt to suit your school and purpose. Each step contains a range of tools including templates, proformas and exemplars.
Not all schools will need to use all the tools included here. Some may find it more helpful to choose those that help enhance the support they already offer to young carers and their families while others will want to simply start to build their activities over a number of years.
