New book for children, families and teachers on young carers

Professor Jo Aldridge has been commissioned to write an illustrated children’s book on young carers for Jessica Kingsley Publishers (JKP). The book – Can I Tell You About Being a Young Carer? – will be included in the JKP “Can I Tell You About…” series and will be aimed at children and families as well as professionals who work with young carers and their families. The book (which will be published in 2018) will also be a useful resource for teachers when discussing caring issues in the classroom.
