Add your school to our map and show your support for young carers

Female young carers using computers in class

We are calling on all schools in England and Wales that are working to identify and support young carers, to showcase their commitment to young carers by adding their school to the Young Carers in Schools map.

Young Carers in Schools is a free  initiative making it easy for schools to support young carers and award good practice.

By adding your school you will:

  • Showcase your school's support for young carers.
  • Showcase to your school community that you are committed to achieving positive impacts for pupils/students with caring responsibilities.
  • Support us to demonstrate the large numbers of schools that are identifying and supporting this vulnerable pupil group, helping ensure that even more schools provide young carers with the support they need in education.
