New Digital Opportunities For Young Carers

We have developed new and exciting digital opportunities available for young carers as part of the Young Carers Package, all of which are accessible from home. 

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak we are not currently able to send out physical Rewards packs to young carers.

Two new digital rewards will now be available to all new 11 year old sign-ups. If you're aged 11, you won't be able to sign up through Young Scot Membership for the Young Carers Package, but you will still be able to get your hands on lots of opportunities.

If you're aged 11, sign up for the Young Scot Young Carers Package online.

If you're 12 to 18 inclusive, you should sign up via Young Scot Membership.
