Young Carers

A Young Carer is a child under 18 who regularly helps to look after a family member or friend, who is disabled, ill, has a mental health condition or addiction problem.

 

 Children may engage in:

  •  Practical tasks (cooking, housework and shopping)
  • Physical care (lifting or helping someone use the stairs)
  • Personal care (dressing, washing, helping with toilet needs)
  • Managing the family budget (collecting benefits and prescriptions)
  • Managing medication
  • Looking after younger siblings
  • Helping someone communicate

 Downend School can support young carers. If you, or a family member, needs support please contact Mrs S Dorman our Young Carers School Lead at the Student Support Centre or email sophie.dorman@CSET.co.uk  All contact will be treated in the strictest confidence.
