Support in schools

Make sure your teacher or year head is aware that you are a young carer. They can help you if your caring role begins to affect you at school or if you have any problems, for example getting homework done or revising for exams. Your school may have a link worker or a school nurse that supports young carers.

If you need someone to support you when you talk about your caring role with your teacher, contact the Young Carers' Project. They have good links with many schools in Coventry and you may find that the support worker visits your school.
