Young Carers at Holy Trinity

Young Carers are children, who look after someone who is unwell, disabled or needs additional support. Usually the person they care for is a member of their family.

As a Young Carer they may:

  • Help someone get around the house – lifting them up, helping them up or down stairs, or helping with physiotherapy.
  • Help someone look after themselves – dressing, washing, and going to the toilet.
  • Help with medication – giving tablets or injections or counting medication.
  • Housework – doing all or most of the cooking, cleaning, or shopping.
  • Look after money – paying the bills or collecting benefits/Money.
  • Look after siblings – putting them to bed, walking them to school, or supporting emotionally.
  • Emotional support – keeping someone calm, or just having to be there to make sure they are okay.
  • Supporting at medical appointments.
  • Interpreting for someone with a hearing or speech problem, or someone who doesn’t speak English.

The person responsible for Young Carers at Holy Trinity is our Pastoral Lead Lesley Ainsworth. If you believe your child is a young carer please speak to her via the school. If you would like to refer your child yourself you can do so by completing the Young Carers Referral Form
