Different kinds of carers assessments are often carried out by or on behalf of different agencies – for example, local authorities, the NHS, and local carers organisations.
Having their own assessment allows the carer to meet with a social worker or health worker to look at what help they need to support them as a carer, find out what help and support may be available and make a decision about the future.
This page gives details of the objectives and key issues of The Carers’ Strategy, which was published in 2008, and refreshed in 2010.Outcomes:I work in:
Young adult carers are transitioning from childhood into adulthood. There is no legal age definition for young adult carers, although Carers Trust’s support work focuses on young adults aged between 14 and 25.
Awareness and support for young adult carers has vastly increased along with recognising the importance of dedicated support and services as they grow into adulthood.
Examples of practice - including the National Young Carers Coalition and links to further information.
This toolkit provides essential tools, templates and guidance for ITE providers who already include young carers as a key topic within their training programmes and ITE providers who are developing their training content regarding young carers.Outcomes:I work in:
