Young Carers

Young Careers

At Notley High School & Braintree Sixth Form we believe that all children and young people have the right to an education, regardless of what is happening at home. When a young person looks after someone in their family who has a serious illness, disability or substance misuse problem, he or she may need a little extra support to help him or her get the most out of school.

Definition

A Young Carer is a student under 16 years of age who helps to look after a family member who is disabled, physically or mentally ill or who has a substance misuse problem. Caring can take the form of physical and/or emotional care or taking responsibility for someone’s safety or wellbeing. The level of responsibility assumed by a Young Carer is often inappropriate to their age and at a level beyond simply helping out with jobs at home, and as such it may impact on the education and wellbeing of the young person. A Young Adult Carer is someone between the ages of 16-24 who is also covered by the same policy.
