Is my child a young carer?

Many school children take on responsibilities at home for family members or friends who may be ill, disabled or misusing drugs or alcohol. At St Bon’s, we want to make sure that we are able to identify and support our young carers.

We have signed up to the schools programme of a local charity, Carers Support Centre. This gives us access to advice and information as well as helping us signpost parents to further help as necessary. The support also includes enrichment activities.

If you think your child is a young carer who could benefit from any of the above, please do email the school office
