This research explores the eco-systemic factors impacting on the educational inclusion of young carers (UK) that defines a young carer as anyone under the age of 18 years old who provides, or intends to provide, care for another person of any age. The literature has indicated that young carers with additional needs are a population more vulnerable to poorer outcomes in educational attainment, employment opportunities, and psychological wellbeing. The current research draws on qualitative research methods to identify the systemic factors that strengthen the educational inclusion of young carers with additional needs. Findings suggest important factors at different systemic levels around the carer, such as the role of the key person within the educational setting, the role of external support and social support in strengthening a young carer's inclusion in their educational setting. The implications for practice are discussed.
