Resources for Teachers and Schools

People Like Us

This is a very useful video based resource which was developed in partnership with young carers and Theatre of Debate.

'People Like Us’ can be used in PSHE sessions and assemblies, along with supporting materials, enabling schools to better support and identify young carers – and educate other pupils on young carers’ needs too.

Angel Awards Scheme

The Angel Award Scheme recognises schools who have taken steps to actively support their young carers.

To achieve the Award, the schools have to meet eight standards, checked by Action for Carers Surrey's Young Carer team and young carers themselves, including having a carers’ champion, a carers support group, training for staff, and assemblies about young carers to help all pupils understand the issues the young carers face, as well as support pupils to self-identify and find the help they need.

For more information please visit the Angel Awards page.
