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, Support and Guidance Manager Miss Borwick is the point of contact for young carers. Miss Borwick can be found in her office, in Moscow building.
