Local Schools and Colleges should Be Bothered!

Tuesday, March 5, 2013

Meg Munn MP recently attended a special event in Parliament for young carers organised by the charity Family Action. Young carers are a hidden group of vulnerable young people who care for parents or siblings with mental health difficulties or disabilities.

 

Their caring role can impact on their education meaning that they don’t get the same chance as their peers to get a good education. They can often be punished at school because of their caring roles which impact on their attendance and punctuality, as well as behaviour and concentration in class. Making sure that these young people have the right support in place is vital to give them the equal chance of a positive future. 

 

Family Action is a national charity that works with disadvantaged and vulnerable families across England. Meg has signed up to their Be Bothered! campaign to make education count for young carers.

 

Meg said:

 

“I  encourage schools and colleges across Sheffield to link up with local young carers services if they’re not already doing so to see how they can work together to support young carers.”
