Young carers celebrate as children’s minister announces million pound funding boost
Young carers from across England are celebrating news of a £1.2 million funding boost to improve local support for young carers and their families. Yesterday’s announcement (Tuesday 26 February) by Edward Timpson MP, Minister for Children and Families, comes as 30 children, whose daily lives are dramatically affected by caring for family members, met with professionals to celebrate the achievements of an innovative young carer project. Find out more on The Children's Society or Carers Trust websites.
What is PTP?
Funded by the Department for Education (DfE), Prevention Through Partnership works to build partnerships that will lead to early interventions, preventing poor outcomes for children, young people and their families. It helps all agencies working with vulnerable families where a parent is experiencing mental ill health or substance dependency and may rely on a child to provide care.
Since late 2011 we have held events across the country in support of this project. We may already have run an event in your area, however, please feel free to contact us for further details.
Who should attend?
These events were for commissioners, senior managers and team leaders from social care, health, mental health and adult treatment teams, probation services, YOTs, early years and workforce development.
- Support implementation of national guidance outlined in the ‘Recognised, valued and supported’ the refreshed carers strategy and ‘Working together to support young carers’ a model memorandum of understanding’ and emerging health and social care guidance.
- Support local development of guidance and protocols to implement good collaborative working between services.
- Provide access to online resources, tools and good practice examples for the implementation of whole family working within the extended workforce, specifically adult treatment services and adult mental health services.
