Edinburgh Young Carers, Space and Capital Carers are thrilled to launch our new document, Supporting Young Carers in School; Good Practice Guidelines
The guidelines have been created in collaboration with professionals from the City of Edinburgh Council and an amazing group of very enthusiastic young carers. Their education experiences shaped the guidelines, and we have included all of their feedback. We hope that you find the guidance helpful and the quotes impactful to help you develop long-term, sustainable approaches to supporting young carers in your school. Having worked in schools, we fully recognise how difficult it is to receive guidelines, so we have created an infographic that outlines some top tips for getting started.
