Meeting the health and wellbeing needs of young carers

By February 26, 2018National News

Councils are under a legal duty to identify young carers and carry out assessments that consider the impact on the child and whole family. Identifying and keeping young carers engaged and involved so that the impact of their caring responsibilities can be minimised is no easy task.

Meeting these challenges requires concerted effort on many different levels.

The Local Government Association has produced a briefing, with case studies, that looks at the challenges and how they may be met

You can read the briefing as an online pdf here
