Carers Trust and The Children’s Society delivered a one year Department for Education funded project to support the effective implementation of the duties required under the Care Act 2014 and the Children and Families Act 2014 with regard to young carers and their families. This work took place between April 2015 and March 2016.

The information on this website will remain available as a hub of resources. Further key resources and news will be added to the site, including the final evaluation reports which are to be made available September 2016.

As and when capacity allows, we will continue to send out e-bulletin updates for local authorities in order to share learning from the project and to highlight relevant news and resources. 

Visit the Making a step change portal site for updates on the law, events and resources.


Take a look at our Barriers and Solutions resource - it shares advice and good practice for implementating the duties with regards to young carers and their families in the Care Act 2014 and the Children and Families Act 2014.
