Online forum – improving support for young carers and young adult carers

25th April 22

Do you want to improve the support available for young carers, young adults carers and their families? You can join an Young Carers Alliance research, policy and practice forum on ‘Improving support for young carers at key points of transition’.

The Young Carers Alliance is a growing network of organisations and individuals committed to changing the negative impact caring for a family member has on young carers, young adult carers and their families and improving the support available to them.

The online forum, taking place via Zoom on Monday 6 June 2022, 1.00pm – 3.30pm, will look at issues affecting young carers at different transition points, for example primary school to secondary school, secondary to higher education and then into employment.

You will have the opportunity to;

  • hear about the some of the work being done to improve transitions for young adult carers,
  • learn about research exploring some of the challenges being faced at transition stages,
  • view examples of transition from primary to secondary school resources,
  • and take part in a discussion around whether transition assessments are working.

The Young Carers Alliance brings together representatives from research, policy and practice. It provides opportunities for collaboration, sharing best practice and a strong, collective voice for young carers.
