The Carers Action Plan 2018-2020 is due to complete this year. Action 3.4 in the plan focuses on young carers from disadvantaged and seldom heard groups, to increase the timely identification of particularly hidden young carers and to support better identification among black, Asian and minority ethnic families.
The findings from the action will be reported on this summer. Next steps and recommendations from the report will form part of the review for the action plan.
We continue to work with carer organisations, and young carer organisations to understand the impact of COVID-19 on young carers. This will help inform our next steps.
