Young Carers in Armed Forces Families Evidencing the Need - January
Do you work with young carers? Do you work with young people in armed forces families?
We would like to invite you to attend one of our information and consultation days.
The Children’s Society Include programme has been awarded a small piece of funding from NHS England to look at the needs of children in armed forces families who may be undertaking caring responsibilities which impact their own wellbeing and education, and to identify gaps in accessing support services.
This project will run from October 2016 – March 2017 and look at the specific needs of young carers from armed forces families across Hampshire and Wiltshire.
The main aims are:
- to produce an information resource specifically for young carers in armed forces families signposting them to further information and advice.
- to inform future military welfare and external agency professional development to improve recognition and support for these young people.
