This training event, delivered by The Children's Society and NHS England & NHS Improvement, will bring together a broad range of multi-agency professionals from the North East and Yorkshire region of England and will provide training around identifying, referring and supporting young carers. This event will also provide attendees with the opportunity to understand the factors that can increase a young carer’s likelihood of remaining hidden; associated vulnerabilities of being a young carer; and how a whole systems, whole family approach can be utilised to better support young carers. This training event will enable you to explore how your role can seek to actively identify, support and improve outcomes for young carers.

This event is aimed at all multi-agency professionals who may be coming into contact with the young carers. We are inviting professionals working in health, specialist services, community groups and education - all of whom have a role to play when working with children, adults and families to identify, support and refer young carers. This event is not just for professionals working within children’s services, or for those already working with young carers – it is relevant and pertinent to all in young people and family facing roles.

This learning event has been commissioned by NHS England & NHS Improvment and will be delivered by The Children’s Society’s Include Service
