Our Young Carers are students under the age of 19 who care for someone in their own home for example a sibling or parent.
The reasons for this could be that they are ill, have a physical or mental disability, sensory impairment, Autism, ADHD etc., or alcohol or drug problems. Young Carers can be affected in various ways: emotionally, physically, socially and educationally.
Here at Onslow St. Audrey’s we want to make sure that our Young Carers have a safe and confidential place, where they can talk and get the support they need. We can liaise between them and their families and give them emotional and educational support.
