What is Making a step change for young carers and their families?

Funded by the Department for Education, Carers Trust and The Children’s Society are co-delivering a two year project which aims to identify, champion and embed best practice in supporting families with young carers.
We are building capacity and awareness with key stakeholders and decision makers across England via events, resources and online support to ensure positive practice is embedded. The partnership will evaluate effective pathways in whole family working by grant funding four ‘Integrated Interventions’ sites between statutory and voluntary sector partners.
