ARE YOU A YOUNG CARER?
- Do you give physical and emotional support and/or provide personal care to people in your household?
- Do you care for parents, siblings or other family members?
- Do you look after your brothers and sisters?
If you have answered yes to any of these questions, St David’s is fully committed to supporting you. However, we need to know! Please tell your pastoral tutor, or email Mr Beynon (JBeynon@stdavidscollege.ac.uk), who has specific responsibility for supporting you whilst at St David’s College.
There are lots of ways we can support you, including:
- Providing financial support (dependent on household income)
- Connecting you to other support agencies
- Allowing you to keep your mobile turned on so you are accessible at all times
- Creating a college timetable that suits your specific needs, where possible
- Providing emotional support
- Creating contingency plans if there are certain times that are more pressurised for you.
