Our EyPIC Team works with schools and colleges to help support Young Carers!
We understand that sometimes Young Carers need a little extra help at school. Balancing studying and being a carer can be hard. Sometimes it might feel that teachers don’t understand and it can be difficult to even speak with friends, who may not realise what it means to be a Young Carer.
We can work with schools to make sure that Young Carers have all the help they need to be able to cope with their workload and, perhaps, even enjoy their time at school.
It is estimated that there are three Young Carers in every secondary school in the UK.
If you are a Young Carer who would like some support at school, or if you work at a school in Enfield which would like to work with us to support and identify the Young Carers in your school; give the EyPIC Team a call on 07809 332106.
(Remember if you are a Young Carer you can speak to us in confidence about anything).
