In the Press

We were delighted to be featured in York Press along with Millthorpe Secondary School, marking Young Carers Awareness Day 2020.  Take a look at the Press article here.

Our young carer team work closely with several schools in the city, to ensure that young carers are identified and get the support they need.

Schools celebrated Young Carer Awareness Day in a variety of  ways this year, such as:

  • York High School’s young carers took over the school’s social media channels, with a day of useful posts to help other young carers in the school.
  • Millthorpe Secondary School ran an assembly and fundraising non-uniform day
  • Knavesmire Primary School did classroom assemblies

There were lots of other examples of great awareness raising activities in schools.

Our team are always happy to work with schools, and we welcome school staff getting in touch for information, advice or help about supporting pupils who also have caring responsibilities.
