The European voice for informal carers
1 - Assessment tool

An assessment tool to identify young carers and to measure the (positive and/or negative) impacts of caring activities on school attainment, attendance, interaction with peers etc. will be developed. The assessment tool will be piloted and tested in schools in the project partners’ countries (at least 50 students per country).

University of Ljubljana will lead the release of this outcome.

A toolkit of educational strategies, didactical approaches and organisational adjustments that schools can take to facilitate young carers and to support them in their scholastic career while taking into account their caring responsibilities will be developed. The toolkit will include two dimensions: the national one, whit sections written in native languages and presenting local-adapted strategies and the European one, with recommendations for transferability and adaptation at a wider level.
