Primary school teachers toolkit

The Princess Royal Trust for Carers in Scotland has produced an information resource for primary schools teachers in Scotland.

Funded by the Scottish Government, this ‘toolkit’ aims to allow teachers to help young children understand what we mean by the term ‘young carer’, identify themselves as young carers and ask for help.

The multi-media toolkit contains ideas for lesson plans, video clips for pupils, case studies, assembly presentation suggestions and many others.
