Young Carers in Schools is a free initiative that makes it as easy as possible for schools to support young carers and awards good practice.

Run jointly by The Children’s Society and Carers Trust, the Young Carers in Schools (YCiS) programme works with schools across England to share good practice, provide relevant tools and training, and celebrate the great outcomes many schools achieve for young carers.

It is free and there is a designates coordinator to help schools with the award. Get your reward pack today ready to start January with your best foot forward!
