Eikon is committed to supporting young carers at Broadwater School.
“Young carers are children or young people under the age of 18 who provide regular and on-going care and emotional support to a family member who is physically or mentally ill, disabled or misuses substances.”
The Association of Directors of Adult Services and the Association of Directors of Child Services
The Eikon Youth Specialist at Broadwater, runs support groups for the school’s young carers through lunchtime clubs, workshops and trips. If your child is a young carer and you would like them to access support from Eikon in school, please contact your child’s form tutor.
