We are keen that professionals have access to training to better understand the needs of Young Carers. We hope this will improve understanding of the support Young Carers may need and how this could be delivered within the service those professionals provide. We hope by increasing awareness and understanding of the needs of Young Carers that many more young people will be better supported and go on to achieve their potential.
The training provides a greater understanding of the role of a Young Carer, the sort of care they may be providing and how professionals may be able to identify them. The training also explores the support that professionals can provide Young Carers as well as explaining the work that Warwickshire Young Carers does.
The training is open to practitioners working in a wide range of backgrounds related to working with children and young people. This might be either on a voluntary or paid basis.
We also have a professionals pack which can be accessed below, in order to gain a brief insight into the lives of young carers and the support which may benefit them.
