Catherine helps our local secondary schools and colleges to identify their young carers and put measures in place to support them such as drop in groups, peer support, or 1-2-1 support. She also helps schools applying for the Young Carers in Schools programme. Another part of her job is supporting young adult carers aged 18+ as they navigate the worlds of further education and employment. She enjoys directly working with young people and is impressed everyday by the compassion and resilience of young carers.
