A young carer is someone aged 18 or under who helps look after a relative who has a condition, such as a disability, illness, mental health condition, or a drug or alcohol problem. Most young carers look after one of their parents or care for a brother or sister.
Here at The Henry Beaufort School, we work with Winchester Young Carers, to support our young people whose lives are affected by caring for someone at home.
Within school, Mrs H Callen-Organ, Student Support & Guidance is the point of contact for young carers. This group is held every Wednesday 1st lunch in Mrs Callen-Organ office opposite BICT.
