Young Carers ( Published: 19/01/2024)

At Levenshulme High School, we facilitate respite and support for students with a caring role.

What is a Young Carer?

We recognise young carers as children and young people under the age of 18, who provide care to another family member. Within our support for young carers we consider what tasks they are doing, as well as the impact upon their emotional, physical and social wellbeing. We are aware that the demands of this caring role can sometimes affect a student’s progress.
