12 - 18 June 2017 is Carers Week. To mark this we're launching the Young Carer's Strategy 2017-2019 - You will find the strategy and briefing slides for professionals in the download section of this page.
In Manchester we know there is a significant under-identification of young carers. Young people often care for family members without the knowledge of their school or other support services. This could be things like helping someone to dress or wash, cleaning, shopping or looking after their siblings. Without support, young carers can struggle at school and miss out on a proper social life: manchester.gov.uk/youngcarers
