Stockport Academy Celebrates Young Carers Day

Our Young Carers have been honoured in school as part of national Young Carers Action Day.

The annual campaign is organised by the Carers Trust, recognising the efforts of young people who help to look after someone in their family or a friend who might be ill, frail, disabled, or have a mental health condition or addiction.

A skill activity worksheet was sent out last week in the post to all known young carers to complete and submit, noting the skills they are most proud to have developed during lockdown, which included qualities such as empathy and becoming a positive role model.

Meanwhile, students throughout school have been invited to enter a Young Carer they know into a prize draw to win shopping vouchers by nominating them via student services and explaining how and why they think they're doing an amazing job.

Young Carers Lead Ms Shonick said: "We are so proud of all our Young Carers here at Stockport Academy, especially through recent times. They are amazing individuals and this is a brilliant opportunity to celebrate them.

"We have good links with Signpost Young Carers Service in Stockport which is a really fun and friendly service that all Young Carers can use for help or advice or as a place to meet others, albeit virtually at the minute. All you have to do is ask or be referred."
