DfE consultation: Young Carers’ draft regulations



This briefing summarises the DfE’s consultation on new regulations for young carers. The Young Carers’ (Needs Assessments) (England) Regulations will come into force on 1 April 2015 and will put into effect Section 96 of the Children and Families Act 2014, under which local authorities in England must assess whether young carers within their area have needs for support and, if so, what those needs are. The draft regulations set out how this must be done.
