Scottish Young Carers Festival ...

We would just like to say another big Thank You to all the young people in Highland who attended the Scottish Young Carers Festival last week.

Some very interesting discussions by the young people with one of the main topics being that not all young carers are aware or are fully informed about what the Carers (Scotland) Act 2016 will mean for them.

Check out the information sheet below which is a quick guide to young carers statement and your rights. Please share and let us know if this is helpful, do you need more information? What else should young carers know about?
