Young Carers Day

Published 23 March 2023

To celebrate Young Carers Day last week, we invited our St Bart’s Young Carers and their friends to the High Score Arcade in Newbury. It was fantastic for us to be able to celebrate our amazing Young Carers by having fun together in the arcade. We are incredibly proud of the role they all play in supporting their loved ones at home. Thank you to everyone who was able to attend.

Young carers are children and young people under 18 who take on caring tasks and responsibilities within their family that most of us only do as adults. The term does not apply to the everyday and occasional help around the home that may often be expected of or given by children in families.

If you think your child might be a Young Carer, please get in touch by emailing Mr Lawes on jlawes@stbarts.co.uk.

For more information on support for young carers in the wider community, please contact Young Carers West Berkshire on 01635 503090 or by emailing EarlyRHub@westberks.gov.uk.
