Orminston Sir Stanley Matthews Academy, Stoke-on-Trent, Year 8 Assembly


Rosina, our School Liaison Worker, delivered a Young Carer Awareness assembly to 152 year 8

children at the school, plus members of the teaching staff.

A number of families were given Information about the Musketeer project for Young Carers. Young Carers at the School are receiving Support from ourselves.

Age-appropriate questionnaires were left with school for the children to complete and these were later collected and the responses analysed. A report was complied for the school which showed:

- The total numbers of Young Carers identified

-How many of those Young Carers wanted school to be made of awareness of their caring role.

-An anonymous profile of each Young Carer.

The school was also sent a Young Carer Awareness Training Certificate.
