Giles Meyer, CEO of Carers Trust, said: "For one fleeting moment today we thought the Chancellor had remembered unpaid carers in his Budget. Sadly, it was just that: a moment."
Young carers have been identified in law as vulnerable. This acknowledgement in law and by Ofsted means that local authorities and schools must step in to stop unsupported caring roles in childhood.
To mark the first anniversary of the Young Carers in School programme (YCiS), 35 participating schools have provided key data showing dramatic impacts on attendance, achievement and confidence of pupils who care for a loved one following their adoption of the programme
Carers Trust is delighted that The National Gardens Scheme (NGS), one of our longest standing and most generous supporters will continue to support us in 2016
