Young Carers

Arthur Mellows Village College, in partnership with www.carerstrustcpn.org, is now providing for Young Carers. We do this by promoting positive images and information about disability, illness and young carers. We consult and listen to young carers ensuring they have the time and space to talk. We intend to embed them in existing school systems to monitor their wellbeing in the same way as other vulnerable pupil groups. We know this is vital because it reduces stigma and ensures a positive ethos where young carers feel safe and confident in accessing support, whilst promoting self-identification where a young carer may self-identify to a member of staff whom they feel they can talk to, creating long term change where young carers are on a similar footing to other vulnerable pupils.
 
Please contact Mrs Blackmore at sblackmore@arthurmellows.org if your child would like to join our group.
