If you or your child are in Year 6 then you will now be thinking about the transition from primary school to secondary school. This can be both an exciting and a daunting time for young carers and their families.
We have put together some information and guidelines on speaking to a new school about being a young carer. This was based upon a transition workshop we held with young carers and their families over the Easter holiday. You can hear more about this session at http://ycih.org/year-6-7-transition-workshop/
We are holding another workshop for Year 6 – 7 young carers and their families on Thursday 18th August in Stevenage. Please contact us if you would like more information.
