Young Carers in Schools – Ambassador Project

Carers in Hertfordshire are looking to recruit additional Young Carer and adult volunteers for the Young Carers in Schools Ambassadors project.

 

These volunteers will be making a difference in their local schools by speaking up about what it’s like to care whilst being in education and how schools can do more to help. By helping raise awareness of Young Carers, more schools will have the correct knowledge and understanding of how to refer Young Carers in their setting.

 

As an Ambassador you might speak to Teachers/Governors/Staff members about Young Carers and how they can be better identified and supported in school, write letters to local education establishments or help deliver assemblies or attending school events – you will not be asked to do anything you do not feel confident doing and we are also very interested to hear how you feel you might be able to help outside of these roles!

 

If you would like further information, please contact Amy on 01992 586 969 or email amy.bartlett@carersinherts.org.uk. There will be an opportunity to hear from some of our Schools Ambassadors at our Young Carers Conference on Thursday 21st February – if you are an adult interested in hearing more, please contact us about attending (RSVP is a must).
