School Nurse Pathway

A pathway has been designed by the Department of Health to help guide school nurses to the right support for young carers

School Nurse Website

A website to raise awareness of young carers and provide advice and guidance to school nurses has been launched by the Royal College of Nursing.

It explains what a young carer is, what School Nurses can do not only as part of Universal Support, but also as part of Universal Plus and Universal Partnership Plus. There are also further resources and websites that School Nurses may find useful.

Other Resources

The Department of Health produced a Fact Sheet for Head Teachers and Governors and for Health and Social Care Professionals which outline facts and guidance that will be useful for those working with School Nurses.
