Young Carers Bucks, the charity which supports and works with young carers in Buckinghamshire aged 6 to 18 years, would like to thank the local village schools in Haddenham and Long Crendon for welcoming us into their schools and allowing us time to talk with the children about the work the Charity does.

The children were wonderful, they asked very pertinent questions about the lives of young carers and were focused and attentive. So, thank you to the children themselves, some as young as five years old.

Information was also passed to the teaching staff about the early identification of young carers, how to refer to the Charity when required and how we can all work together to improve the lives of our children.

Young Carers Bucks services the whole of the County of Buckinghamshire and supports almost 700 young carers. Funding has been given to the Charity by the Local Area Forum to raise awareness in the Haddenham and Long Crendon schools of young carers who are perhaps not yet identified
as needing support. By highlighting the types of caring roles our young people are carrying out within their families on a daily basis we are hoping that more children will be referred to us and therefore more families supported.

The stresses of a long term caring role can have an adverse effect on the health, education and welfare of the young carer. The funding we have received is also allowing us to start to work with the local clubs on delivering young carers awareness information training to the activity organisers and facilitating the introduction of young carers into the local activities.

So a big thank you also to our funders.
