Young Carers

The Carers (Scotland Act) 2016 came into effect in April 2018. It entitles young carers to a "Young Carer Statement" (YCS). A YCS identifies a young carer's individual needs and personal outcomes and forms a plan to help them achieve their goals. The aim of a YCS is to support young carers to have a life alongside their caring role.
