Welcome to the new Digital Education Hub for all staff in Scotland working with young carers in schools. These resources are for West Lothian.
Working for Carers is led by Carers Trust and delivered by its network of partners (local carer organisations) across London. Working for Carers is funded by the European Social Fund and The National Lottery Community Fund. The first phase of the project ran from October 2016 and September 2019 and was evaluated by Ecorys.
This Young Carers in Schools resource helps school staff understand the challenges that young carers are experiencing during the COVID-19 crisis and offers practical guidance on how to support young carers. It is a pack which also includes a Staff Briefing for schools and a Top Tips written by young carers.
This resource is primarily aimed to be a guide for local government. The Children and Families Act 2014 places a duty on local authorities to take ‘reasonable steps’ to identify young carers in their area who have support needs. This resource sets out these duties and shows how local government can work with education, health and social care partners to take the steps necessary to increase identification of young carers.
A presentation from the Triangle of Care Celebration Event which took place on 9 October 2019. The Triangle of Care describes a therapeutic relationship between the patient, staff member and carer that promotes safety, supports communication and sustains wellbeing.
Triangle of Care is a model which asserts that care is best delivered when a child/young person receiving input from child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS), professionals and carers share their expertise and experiences to ensure the best outcome for all.
Triangle of Care principles translate across many different specialisms and fields in mental health. They are based upon the core principle that carers, people who use services and professionals should work in equal partnership to promote safety, support recovery and sustain wellbeing.
This toolkit provides essential tools, templates and guidance for Initial Teacher Education (ITE) providers who already include young carers as a key topic within their training programmes and ITE providers who are developing their training content regarding young carers.
Network Partners, carer services and mental health service providers can promote the Triangle of Care to carers, professionals and service users with these specially designed leaflets and posters. The Triangle of Care describes a therapeutic relationship between the patient, staff member and carer that promotes safety, supports communication and sustains wellbeing.
The Triangle of Care describes a therapeutic relationship between the person with dementia (patient), staff member and carer that promotes safety, supports communication and sustains wellbeing. This guide is aimed at acute hospital wards and services where a person with dementia may be admitted but their dementia is not the reason for their admission.
