Young Carer Aware provides everyone with a practical understanding of young carers and their needs. More importantly, though, it signposts all the sources of support that are available to help them enjoy a happy, fulfilling childhood.

 

The Young Carer Aware online training course is made up of four bite-sized sections:

  1. Young but not care free

    Defines “young carer” and provides key facts and figures on young carers and the work they do.

  2. Legislation and children’s rights

    Introduces the rights of children and the legislation in place to protect young carers. Now fully revised and updated to incorporate the Children & Families Act and Care Act.

  3. Meeting the needs of young carers

    Explores the problems young carers can face and the services available to support them.

  4. Test your knowledge

    Comprehensive mastery test to verify each user’s knowledge and understanding of the contents of the course. On successfully passing the test, users can download a personal course completion certificate.
