To celebrate Young Carers Awareness Day 2020, we’ve launched some new opportunities as part of the Young Carers Package! Have a look below to see what’s new.
If you’re aged 11 – 18 and help to care for a family member, friend or someone in your community, you can apply for the Young Carers Package by becoming a Young Scot Member.
National Book Token
Reading can be a great way to relax and unwind so why not get a new book and escape to another world for a couple of hours? With the Young Carers Package, you can now claim a £10 National Book Token which can be redeemed at thousands of locations nationwide.
Want to have a jumping session with friends to blow off some steam? Claim a voucher for Ryze Extreme Air Sports and you could get a two hour jump or a one hour jump for you and a pal! Ryze have parks in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dundee.
Regular Prize Draws
New for 2020, we’re going to be hosting regular prize draw rewards where you’ll have the chance to win some awesome rewards like a Fitbit Charge 3, a HP Chromebook and Ticketmaster vouchers!
The first prize draws are open now and you could win a Fitbit Charge 3 or a £50 Ticketmaster voucher. Remember to check back regularly to see what’s up for grabs!
Whether you're a doodler or an artist, colouring in can be very therapeutic and help you de-stress. You can choose from a Harry Potter themed colouring book or an art therapy colouring book - both come with a pack of colouring pencils. Which one will you choose?
As well as the new additions to the Young Carers Package, you can also claim your old favourites like a free monthly cinema ticket at Vue, Cineworld or Odeon, and a 12-month tastecard subscription for 50% off or 2 for 1 meals out at places like Frankie & Benny’s and Pizza Express.
Don’t see your local cinema in the Package? Give us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll see what we can do.
