Stoke Damerel Young Carers Group was set up five years ago to support students who are young carers of parents or siblings with a mental or physical illness. 

There are more than 166,000 young carers in England and those figures are rising every year.

The Stoke Damerel group meets every Monday from 3-4pm and is run by Ms Blackmore - the College’s Young Carers Champion - with the support of Student Support Advisors across the year groups.

"Activities in these meeting times include movie nights, arts and crafts, cooking, pamper evenings and games nights. We also organise a variety of trips on a yearly basis which vary every year," said Ms Blackmore.

"We are also lucky to be able to offer a breakfast club on a Wednesday morning from 8-8:30am which is sponsored by Warburtons who provide several loaves
of bread every week to enable the young carers to have breakfast before they start school.

"We have a dedicated room for young carers - decorated by members of the group and filled with comfortable furniture to make it a welcoming and calm place to be.

"Students are be able to book the room and use it at break time, lunch time and at the end of the day.

"We have received the Young Carers In Schools Bronze Award to recognise the support we provide to young carers here."

For further information on the support we provide, parents are encouraged to speak to the Student Support Advisor in their child's year team or alternatively contact Ms G Blackmore This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
