Swindon Carers Centre will be celebrating the work being carried out in schools, colleges, academies and alternative provision across Swindon to support young carers at a special Afternoon Tea celebration event on Tuesday 5th December.

The afternoon is an opportunity to thank education staff for all their work in implementing the Young Carer Award in their schools and celebrating the fantastic support they give to young carers. Around 30 schools will be represented by their Young Carer Lead and young carers.

Five schools will also be presented with the Ambassador Award. This is awarded to schools where the Young Carer Leads have gone above and beyond to support young carers.
