Surrey Young Carers - Angel Award

We are delighted to let you know that we have been accredited with the Surrey Young Carers Angel Award.

A Young Carer is someone under 18 years old who looks after someone in their family, or a friend, who is ill, disabled or misuses drugs or alcohol. We have identified 16 Young Carers at Glyn School who care for someone in their life on a daily basis.

Following a close collaboration between Surrey Young Carers and Glyn School, and having undertaken training, educating staff and students, and providing information for our families, we have been assessed as having reached the required level to be awarded with the Surrey Young Carers Angel Award, which is a wonderful accolade. Cathy Wood from Surrey Young Carers came into school this week to present us with the award, which is now on display in Main Reception. 

In today’s society, it is imperative that all young people have support for their social, emotional and mental health needs, and this is especially true of Young Carers who are themselves caring for someone in their family. Schools can play a vital role in supporting students who provide care for someone else, as well as raising awareness in others of Young Carers’ needs. For any number of social reasons, Young Carers can be difficult to identify, and often remain  hidden from view but, with awareness and understanding, we are then in a position to do all we can to support them. At school, our Young Carers are invited to meet with each other, share food together,  review the week, and play games together, as well as sharing stories and offering or seeking advice from each other.   

Young Carers demonstrate resilience on a daily basis, simultaneously caring for someone else on a daily basis, whilst studying at school to gain their education.

We are humbled to have been accredited with the Angel Award on behalf of our Young Carers.
