Who is a Young Carer?
Who are Young Carers?
“Young carers are children or young people under the age of 18 who provide regular and on-going care and emotional support to a family member who is physically or mentally ill, disabled or misuses substances”. Young carers ‘sibs’ are children who have a brother or sister who is disabled, has a special educational need or a serious long term condition.
If you think your child may be a Young Carer / sibs, and the school is not aware of this please contact hslw@kingfield,surrey.sch.uk or speak to Lisa (HSLW)/ Ms Sweeney (inclusion lead)
