The Lives of Young Carers in England – Insights for Health and Education
Friday 16 June, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 2:30 pmFree
This event is a morning conference to better understand the impacts of caring on young people and the implications for their health and education. OCF’s Simon Barnard will be attending.
The main speaker is Professor Jo Aldridge of Loughborough University, the author of the recent 2017 Department of Education report, The Lives of Young Carers in England, who will be presenting the findings at the event. In Oxfordshire there are an estimated 13,000 young carers (OCCG 2014); specialist support for young carers in the county is limited and under pressure from increasing demand and reducing budgets.
