Young Carers are children and young people, up to the age of 18, whose lives are affected by looking after someone. This may include physical or learning disabilities, long term illness, mental health illness, or drug or alcohol challenges. This may be a parent, brother, sister or other family member.
At Grange Federation we want Young Carers to be recognised, feel supported and know they have someone to speak to in school.
For more information please take a look at our Young Carers Letter and policy. There is also information on the Young Carers Charter on this page and a link to the Swindon Carers website where you can find further information on Young Carers.
