This learning event will bring together a broad range of multi-agency professionals from across the North West (Greater Manchester, Cheshire, Merseyside, South Cumbria, Lancashire) and will provide training and networking around identifying, referring and supporting young carers affected by HIV. This event will also provide attendees with the opportunity to better understand the barriers and challenges faced by young carers affected by HIV, the additional vulnerabilities associated with a young carer remaining ‘hidden’, and how professionals can develop their practice in order to better support young carers.
This event is aimed at multi-agency professionals who may be working with young carers affected by HIV. We are inviting professionals working in specialist HIV services, young carers services, community groups, education, and health and social care sectors – all of whom have a role to play when working with children, adults and families in identifying and supporting young carers affected by HIV.
This learning event has been commissioned by NHS England North region Safeguarding Programme and will be delivered by The Children’s Society’s Include Service.
The booking deadline is Wednesday 12th May.
