UEA Research on Young Carers & COVID-19

7th April 2020

Through their Norfolk Young Carers Forum work, Carers Together are linking with a researcher from UEA who is wanting to do some work around how COVID-19 is affecting young carers and young adult carers.

They are going to be organising some zoom focus groups for young people to be able link in, but the researcher is also really keen to speak to staff working for young carers organisations as well as other key stakeholders (e.g. school staff, commissioners) to get their views on the issues being faced, how they are supporting young carers and their families etc.

The researcher will be joining the NYCP meeting next week, but if any of you are supporting young carers in anyway and would be willing to take part, please let Andy McGowan know.
