Young carers information

At Irchester Community Primary School, we support all children whatever their needs. Young Carers in particular, can be difficult to recognise and we try hard to identify and support these children.

A Young Carer is defined as a person under 18 who provides or intends to provide care (including practical and emotional support) for another person. (Children and Families Act 2014). The person receiving care may be ill, disabled, have a mental health condition or addiction problem.

Young Carers often take on tasks that would be expected on an adult. These can include:

  • Practical tasks – cooking, housework and shopping
  • Physical care – lifting or helping someone use the stairs
  • Personal Care – dressing, washing, helping with toileting needs
  • Emotional Support – listening, calming, being present
  • Managing the family budget, collecting benefits and prescriptions
  • Medication Management
  • Looking after younger siblings
  • Helping someone communicate

If you think your child is a Young Carer – please get contact Mrs Hobson (SENCo) or Mrs Thom (FLW)
