<p>The government is committed to supporting young carers; to improve their health and wellbeing, and to protect them from excessive or inappropriate caring responsibilities that can impact on their education.</p><p> </p><p>In June, the cross-government Carers Action Plan, a two-year programme of tailored work to support unpaid carers of all ages, was launched: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/carers-action-plan-2018-to-2020" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/carers-action-plan-2018-to-2020</a>. Section 3 sets out the government’s actions specifically to support young carers. This includes plans to improve: identification of young carers; educational opportunities and outcomes; access to support and services; and transition for young adult carers. In delivering on these commitments, together with the Department for Health and Social Care, the Department for Education is currently inviting bids to undertake a review of best practice in identifying young carers.</p><p> </p><p>This action builds on significant changes to the law through the Children and Families Act 2014, to improve how young carers and their families are identified and supported.</p>
