Young Carers

A Young Carer is a child under 18 who regularly helps to look after a family member or friend who is disabled, ill, has a mental health condition or addiction problem.

Children may engage in:

  • Practical tasks (cooking, housework and shopping)
  • Physical care (lifting or helping someone use the stairs)
  • Personal care (dressing, washing, helping with toilet needs)
  • Managing the family budget (collecting benefits and prescriptions)
  • Managing medication
  • Looking after younger siblings
  • Helping someone communicate

Wootton Academy can support young carers.

We understand that caring for a family member can impact attendance, punctuality, attainment, ability to complete homework as well as the physical and emotional impact on a young person. We can support the Young Carer in school and sign post to other support such as Young Carers in Bedford and the School Nurse Service.

If you, or a family member, needs support please contact Mrs Thomas Young Carers School Operational Lead on 01234 767123 or email Alternatively you can speak to Mr Rutter our Young Carers Senior Leadership Team Lead on the same contact details. All contact will be treated in the strictest confidence.
