Could you be a Young Carer?

East Lothian Council and Bridges Project are working together to ensure that Young Carers throughout East Lothian are recognised, supported and celebrated.

They want to identify Young Carers, raise awareness throughout schools and offer Young Carer Questionnaires and Statements in order to help provide support.   They offer drop-in sessions for Young Carers needing information/advice within schools, set up support and focus groups, encourage YCs Ambassadors and help you apply for Young Scot Carers Package/Carers Grants/Local Break  from Caring Fund.
