Young Carers Grant – Save the date, Thursday 29th March.

< Back

Have you heard about the Young Carers Grant?
As part of a package of support the Scottish Government is looking to introduce a Young Carer Grant for young carers aged 16 – 18. Young carers who are eligible for the grant would receive £300 towards helping them access leisure activities or support with education.
Carers Trust and Young Scot are holding focus groups with young carers across Scotland to discuss the design of this new grant. They will be asking who should get it and how should young carers access it. They will be visiting Inverness on Thursday 29th March and we are asking young carers aged 15 – 24 to come along and have their say.
Further information will be sent out soon but if you would like to be part of this discussion please get in touch Kirsty Campbell on 01463 723562 or kcampbell@connectingcarers.org.uk to find out more. 
Be part of something great, have your say and help shape the future for young carers.
