A young carer is a young person under the age of 18 whose life is affected by the care needs of another person, who help to look after a relative with a disability, illness, mental health condition, or drug or alcohol problem.
Young carers help with tasks usually done by an adult:
We find out who our Young Carers are here at The Portsmouth Academy in various ways: Information is passed to us from Primary Schools, Safeguarding team, pupils and parents.
We offer a Friday lunchtime ‘drop-in’ session for all Young Carers and work with individual pupils to provide further help and support as and when required (homework and classwork support, emotional support, etc.).
If you require any more information regarding young carers please email Miss J Martin – J.Martin@tsatrust.org.uk (Inclusion and Equity lead)
