Supporting Young Carers in Schools: Free training for local authority coordinators and young carers services

Sign up to one of our free events providing essential training and support to local authorities and young carers services to increase the identification of young carers in their area and to increase school engagement.

Explore the whole-school approach promoted by YCiS and offer in-depth targeted advice on how services can use YCiS to engage school staff, maintain momentum and implement sustainable change.
  • Provide you with the key information you need to support schools to gain a Young Carers in Schools Award.
  • Highlight available tools and resources available and good practice in the sector.
