We are collaborating with Healthwatch Oxfordshire, undertaking research to establish:
1. The overall number of young carers in Oxford City;
2. The level of specialist support available to them.
The research, which is now complete, sought the views of young carers and their families, the City’s secondary schools, a selection of primary schools and other youth and community groups.
The research will influence, and could help design, future young carers’ support in Oxford.
A joint Be Free YC, Healthwatch Oxfordshire report on the findings will be published this year.
