Towers School and Sixth Form Centre

Young Carers

Did you know here at Towers school we offer a Young Carer support group on the first Tuesday of every month during recreation time? The group, run by our Young Carer Champion Mrs Dehara, is open to all known Young carers caring for a family member with a long-term illness, disability, poor mental health or substance misuse issue.

Whether it's to just sit and listen, talk and share, do drawing and colouring or play games, we are here!

Do you think your child could be a young carer? Please contact Mrs Dehara Telephone: 01233 634171 ext 282 Email or for more info; give Kent Young Carers a call on 0300 111 110 or email

We have over 100 Young Carers in our school registered already, so you are not alone!
