Young Adult Carers at School: Experiences and Perceptions of Caring and Education
In 2013, Carers Trust commissioned the University of Nottingham to undertake research to find out the experiences and aspirations of young adult carers in relation to school, further and higher education and work.
A total of 362 people viewed the survey from which the responses of 295 young adult carers aged 14–25 have been analysed. This is the first of a series of reports to be published across 2013 and 2014 looking at school, college and university, employment, those not in work or education, and gender.
In this report we explore the experiences and perceptions of school by young adult carers who are still at school.
