Young Carers

Information from IMAGO and Kent Young Carers:

There are over 10,000 Young Carers in Kent and according to BBC research there could be another 30,000 hidden Young Carers!  It is important that Young Carers know that they are not alone in their caring role.

 

'Being a Young Carer can have a negative impact on a young person such as low confidence and self-esteem, low educational attendance & attainment and poor physical & mental health.  It is Kent Young Carers' aim to reduce the negative and highlight the positive impact of being a carer such as increased resilience, empathy, non-judgemental attitude and caring nature.'

At St John's, we want to celebrate these young people by allowing them to be proud of their caring role, but also to give them time out for themselves. A nurture group is run once a month to allow them time out of class to pursue 'fun' activities and provide them with a safe environment in which to talk to others - if they wish!

 

See Mrs Gee for more information!

 

November 2018

The Young Carers met for some arts and crafts. Lots of fun was had, including painting, play dough and talking about Minecraft!

It was lovely to witness the sharing of experiences as their confidence and trust of each other grew!
