The Children’s Society is a leading children’s charity committed to making childhood better for all children in England. Our national network of centres and programmes deliver specialist services for children who face disadvantage in their daily lives. Our schools work, children’s centres and mentoring programmes help children develop the skills and confidence they need to make the most of their childhood and play a full part in their local communities. Our research and campaigning aims to influence the thinking of everyone – including politicians and decision makers, creating real change and making childhood better for all children.
The Children’s Society Include Programme give a voice to children and young people who care for parents or siblings who suffer from chronic illness or disability. We campaign for change and promote best practice with central and local government and work in partnership with social workers, teachers and health care professionals to deliver solutions that consider the needs of the whole family.
The Children’s Society’s Include Programme offers information, training and support to both statutory and voluntary sectors who work with young carers and their families. More information and a range of resources, including a Good Practice Guide for Practitioners are available on The Children’ Society Young Carer website.
