Young Carer Positive

Exciting times ahead.
We have launched our Young Carers Positive Award, a quality award for schools to help them become young carer positive. The award is a framework that supports schools to make sure that young carers are Seen, Heard and Supported.
The awards are currently being piloted in several schools across Highland and information about the Awards scheme can be found here on our website.
We are delighted that the team has been asked to present our new awards at the next Scottish Young Carers Alliance Showcase in Edinburgh in March 2018. 
If you would like to find how we can support you to achieve this award please contact our Schools Liaison Worker Gemma Cooper at gcooper@connectingcarers.org.uk
