Who cares for young carers?

The Young Carers Package is a special bundle of treats available to all young carers, aged 11 to 18 inclusive in Scotland. It's filled with special treats to help them make the most of their free time and support them in their caring role. Best of all, it's completely free!

A young carer is anyone who cares, unpaid, for a family member, friend or member of their community, regularly and on a long-term basis. They might help someone get dressed in the morning, or get their shopping each week, or they might provide emotional support.
