Young Carers

Meeting the needs of Young Carers at The King Edmund School.

At KES we are aware that some of our students are Young Carers.  Children under 18 who are caring unpaid for a family member or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or addiction problems.

Here at KES our Young Carers Team provide support so that all of our young people have the same life opportunities as their peers to achieve their full potential.

We offer support with homework, coursework, peer support, organisation, worries and concerns and to provide a listening ear. The support we provide has proven to be very positive with our students.
