We need your permission to work with your child, and to take them on trips or to groups. Consent forms must be completed if you want your child to receive support from us and take part in groups, trips and events.
Annual consent form
When your child joins the service you will be sent a link to the annual consent form. When you sign this consent form you give permission for your child to be supported by us. This form covers all groups, individual work and any small group work with Carers’ Resource and its staff. We will send you reminders annually to complete a new form.
Please complete the consent forms in full and include all illnesses/conditions/medication (including asthma).
Staff will not give out or carry any medication unless parents have arranged this beforehand and completed the medication section of the annual consent form. If your child is due to go on a trip or residential break, please ensure you have discussed any medication needs with staff in advance. Young carers can carry and administer their own medication if you feel they are able to do so safely. This will be your responsibility. Please also ensure that any asthma inhalers are bought to every activity.
We like to take lots of photos! A selection of photos from trips will be available to view on our website gallery. On the annual consent form we ask for permission to take pictures of young carers taking part in activities, and to use these and/or quotes from your child for publicity, such as on our website. We respect your decision if you do not wish to give permission for this.
Important: Young carers must not take photos or videos of other young people without their knowledge or consent. It is especially important that they do not upload these to social media if the young carers shown in the images do not want them to. This will be dealt with by us as bullying and may lead to a ban from our activities.
