Young Carers

At The East Manchester Academy, we facilitate respite and support for students with a caring role.

Do You Want to Talk?

Drop in sessions every Monday at lunch time in the Multi-Agency Room (2nd floor).

What is a Young Carer?

We recognise young carers as children and young people under the age of 18, who provide care to another family member.

Within our support for young carers we consider what tasks they are doing, as well as the impact upon their emotional, physical and social wellbeing. We are aware that the demands of this caring role can sometimes affect a student’s progress.

We Offer

  • Half termly meetings offering opportunities for students to highlight any support required
  • Regular trips such as ice skating, bowling, cinema trips
  • In school events such as cooking, radio skills and gaming
  • A chance to get to know other young carers in similar situations
  • Links to further information and support organisations
