The Lowry’s Learning and Engagement team launched an exciting new project at St Charles R.C Primary School with Salford Young carers this week. The aim of the project is to create an online educational tool that that will help other young people, teachers and youth workers to identify if they know someone who is a young carer.

Most young people do not realise that they are taking on caring responsibilities and there are currently around 3000 young carers, some as young as five, that we know of in Salford.

In the first session the group worked on the beginning of the design process including colour, layout, typography and images for the online educational tool. It will be young person friendly and be available to use alongside films that the group of have made in the past. The project will end in August with an intensive week of learning with The Lowry’s Marketing Team.
