Young Carers

Are You a Young Carer?

A young carer is someone who looks after another person. Caring for someone might involve things you do every day like cooking and cleaning. Or you might have to do much more if your family member can’t do some things themselves.

We are extremely proud of our Young Carers at Cathays High School and we want to provide as much support as possible.

Ms Sue Jones is our Young Carers Lead and is available in Safe Ty to offer support and advice.

If you think that you are a young carer and feel that you need some extra support in school or need some advice you can complete the ’ Young Carers Safe Ty Self-referral form ‘ by clicking on the button below.

Safe Ty staff will then contact you to arrange a convenient time to discuss extra support.

If you are a young carer and would like to speak to one of our school counsellors, you can self-refer by completing the ‘ Young Carers Counselling Self-Referral form’ by clicking on the button below.
