Local young carers services

As an England-wide programme, Young Carers in Schools encourages effective partnerships between schools and their local young carers’ services. Local services can greatly enhance school support for young carers and can often help facilitate the identification of young carers.

There are over 350 young carers’ services across the UK. Young carers’ services work in a variety of ways and deliver different types of support to young carers.
