At Glen Park we recognise how important it is to support all of our families and understand that family life is not always easy. We have recently tried to identify all our Young Carers, children who take on responsibility for caring for someone at home. This may be a sibling, parent, grandparent, auntie or uncle. Any child can be a Young Carer and we know the importance of the support they receive and the importance of knowing they are not alone.
Young Carers Support Group
Louise Cutler runs a weekly Young Carers Support Group for all our identified carers. This year they decided they want to re brand them selves as, 'Tiny Guardians.'
We run a weekly support group for our identified carers, giving them the opportunity to express themselves, share and talk through any worries, but most importantly to feel like they belong and have a voice.
Throughout the year they take part in exciting fundraisers, local events and outings all designed to support them in their role as a Young Carer, and help them connect to others in similar situations. All events and fundraising opportunities will be shared on our Facebook page and filers displayed around the school - so please keep an eye out for any exciting events happening throughout the school year and support us where you can.
If you feel you or a member of your family identify as a young carer then please get in touch using the email, or telephone numbers provided - we also have a message box in reception where details can be left.
