Who are our Young Carers?
How do we support them?
At Pilgrims' Way Helen our Family Liaison Officer runs a drop in three times a week from Miss Middleton's room. Other staff pop in when they can to support.
Monday lunchtime for years 3 to 6 - Wednesday lunchtime for years 5 and 6 - Thursday lunchtime for years 3 and 4. But the door is always open to any child who needs to pop in or feels they are a Young Carer and wants to chat about it.
Children are welcome to pop in briefly or stay for the whole session.
We have our own trolley of special games always available to play alone or together and a choice of drinks and biscuits
Elise from Canterbury Young Carers drops in a couple of times a term to see the children.
