APPG on Young Carers and Young Adult Carers - Projects and reports
As part of its role in helping to raise awareness and improve support for young carers and young adult carers, the APPG will undertake specific projects and produce reports. This page contains all of the information about these projects and reports.
APPG Inquiry into life opportunities for young carers
On Wednesday 7th June, as part of national Carers Week, the APPG on Young Carers and Young Adult Carers will be launching an inquiry into life opportunities for young carers. This inquiry will be looking at both the short-term impact of caring on the life opportunities for young carers (e.g. access to education, time away from caring and support for them and their family), as well as long-term (e.g. transition to adulthood for young adult carers, access to higher education, training and employment). The launch is taking place on Wednesday 7th June, 5-6pm on Zoom. E-mail email@example.com to register your interest.
As part of this the APPG is looking for a group of young carers/young adult carers from across England to act as Youth Advisors to the inquiry. They will help ensure that the views of young carers and young adult carers are present throughout the inquiry process. Youth advisors will have the opportunity to help set the questions, review the responses, help prepare the report and recommendations and be involved with the launch of our report.
To find out more, have a look at this document which contains all of the information, including how to apply (the initial deadline is Wednesday 3rd May). If you have any questions, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
Carers Action Plan 2018-20 and Young Carers/Young Adult Carers – Spring 2023
The APPG is reviewing the elements of the Carers Action Plan specific to young carers and young adult carers. This review will look at what the Carers Action Plan has achieved for young carers and young adult carers, and what is needed in any future Carers Strategy This will then feed into a wider review of the Carers Action Plan being undertaken by the APPG on Carers.
The APPG would really like to hear from young carers, young adult carers and services that support them as to what difference the Carers Action Plan has made for young carers and young adult carers. It will also consider any areas which weren’t covered by the Carers Action Plan which would need to be included in any future Carers’ Strategy.
Carers Trust have put together a document showing the actions in the Carers Action Plan relating to young carers and young adult carers. There is a simple form for you to submit your views by Tuesday 25 April. Alternatively, you can e-mail your thoughts to email@example.com.
