School Service

School Service

Staff attend secondary schools regularly around Torbay: Brixham College, Paignton Community and Sports Academy, St Cuthbert Maybe, Spires and Torquay Academy. Staff are looking to develop links with Grammar Schools and South Devon High School as well as preserving our involvement in local Primary Schools. Being in the school environment allows the Young Carers to speak in confidence about any “teenage” worries that they may not want to worry any one at home with. Due to proximity to teachers and support, any concerns can be easily discussed. Working with Young Carers joining and leaving education allows TYC Staff to assist in making a positive transition for Young Carers who may be anxious about the School environment, it also allows the team to support Young Carers in their development into adulthood and the follow on agencies after TYC.

The service provides support for teachers and schools in order to be able to support their Young Carers and to perform in best practice. We have provided training, presentations, advice and drop in services.
