From Spring 2023 there is going to be a new Young Carer indicator on the schools census return for all schools (not nurseries). This indicator will record whether the pupil has been identified as a young carer and by whom.
Come and join other schools, young carer organisations, local authorities and others to understand more about what this means in practice for schools, young carer organisations and most importantly, young carers.
It will also provide an opportunity to hear about what schools can do in preparation for this change so that young carers are identified and linked into support at the earliest opportunity.
