Devon Young Carers

22nd May 2019

Is your child a Young Carer?

Devon Young Carers work with young people aged 4-18 who help look after someone in their family, or a friend who is ill, disabled, misuses drugs and alcohol or has a special educational need that requires extra support at home.

Here at Newton Poppleford Primary School, we have teamed up with Devon Young Carers to try to ensure that the young carers in our school will receive the support they need. If you would like more information on the support Devon Young Carers provide please read the accompanying leaflet or contact Devon Young Carers on:

Email: youngcarers@devoncarers.org.uk

Telephone: 03456 434 435  ( call charges apply)

Alternatively please speak to Mrs Debbie Tollerfield, here at Newton Poppleford Primary School or pick up a leaflet from the school office.

If you are not sure if your child qualifies as a young carer please contact Devon Young Carers or Mrs Tollerfield and someone will be able to discuss this with you.
