The North East Raising Aspiration Partnership is committed to it’s work with Young Carers across the region.

A young carer is someone under 18 who helps look after someone in their family, or a friend, who is ill, disabled or misuses drugs or alcohol. Research has identified that as many as 2 pupils in every class could be a young carer.

We offer our Choices Together Progressive Programme for Young Carers and Care Experienced young people. Our 2021/22 year is underway and we are very much looking forward to sharing details about how you can get involved in the programme next year!
