What On at the Scottish Young Carers Festival 2021

The Scottish Young Carers Festival is back and although it can't be in person this year, there's still lots to get involved with!

What is the Scottish Young Carers Festival?

The Scottish Young Carers Festival takes place every year and provides a chance for young carers to have a break from their caring role, meet other young carers, take part in consultation and most importantly, have fun!

What's happening this year?

Providing fun and meaningful respite to young carers is still so important, despite not hosting the Scottish Young Carers Festival in person this year!

In 2020, Carers Trust Scotland listened to young carers to shape what 2021 could bring.

Check out the 2021 Scottish Young Carers Festival webpage to explore over 40 workshops, covering a whole range of topics! Practice your Italian with Lingo Flamingo, learn more about healthy eating with Nutrition Scotland or develop new photography skills with Stills Scotland!

You can also learn more about the “Young Carer Voice: Consultation Event” which provided a platform for young carers to have their voices heard by key decision makers.
