Targeted support for young carers and families formed part of the vision of the National Strategy for Carers. The value of dedicated support for young carers cannot be underestimated.
The Department for Education funded Carers Trust between 2010 and 2012 to build a collection of practice examples to support those who commission or develop services think about how to deliver creative and effective services locally.
