Millthorpe was delighted to host the first Young Carers in Schools event. The day was organised by the Carers Trust alongside York Carers Centre. A significant number of schools were represented on the day to hear about the Young Carers in Schools award.
As part of the day Millthorpe were asked to give a presentation about the work that we already undertake with our young carers. Two of our young carers also gave a presentation based on what it is like to be a young carer in school. Our young carers also acted as guides for the day and joined us for the networking lunch.
As Millthorpe has been working closely with our young carers for a considerable period of time, we were in the position of being able to submit the evidence required for the Bronze Yong Carers in School Award. We are currently awaiting the outcome and hope to hear before the end of term whether we have been successful.
