Young carer experts
Action for Carers has a team of Education Advisors across Surrey. Their role is to work with schools to help them identify and support young carers, so they can achieve the best possible outcomes.
As a teacher they can help you with:
- delivering assemblies
- liaising with Home School Link Workers and SENCOs
- setting up clubs for young carers
Our Angel Award is made to Surrey schools which meet a set of criteria that demonstrate their commitment to and support of young carers.
