Warwickshire Young Carers are an organisation set up to improve the lives of young carers by offering free and confidential support. They provide 1-1 support, group sessions and opportunities to meet other young people .

A young carer is a young person who lives with someone who has an illness, disability, mental health or substance misuse problem. They may also be taking on practical and/or emotional caring responsibilities that would normally be expected of an adult. They are at risk of social isolation and bullying, under-achievement, absenteeism from school, and physical and mental ill health.

If you feel you would benefit from this support – or you know someone who would – you can make a referral directly, or we can support with this in school.

You can find out more on the Warwickshire Young Carers website or contact Mrs Haines, our Student Welfare Manager on haines.c@myton.co.uk.
