Young Carers Challenge
Caring Together, Norfolk County Council and Young Carers Matter Norfolk, with the support of organisations across the county, have set a challenge to make sure every young carer in Norfolk has someone they can talk to in school and knows what support is available to help them.
Many children and young people play a vital but demanding role in helping to look after a family member because of an illness, disability or addiction. Too often their role is not known, and this means the impact of their caring role is not understood, and they do not have the essential support they need.
We have signed up to the challenge to help us to identify any young carers in our school and offer them support.
Our Young Carers Champion is Mrs Louise Jones.
