Fife Young Carers crowned Charity of the Year at Scottish Charity Awards

Fife Young Carers has been crowned Charity of the Year in the Scottish Charity Awards 2024.

The organisation, part of Carers Trust’s network of local carer organisations, triumphed in the category for charities with a turnover of more than £500,000.

Fife Young Carers provides holistic support to tackle the isolation, poor educational attainment and mental health challenges faced by young carers, some as young as five.

The award came hot on the heels of Fife’s 25th anniversary. The landmark year was challenging for the charity following the death of longstanding CEO Kirstie Howell.

But despite that loss, the team continued to provide life-changing support, delivered 25 different anniversary events and met their long-term aim of moving to a new home so they could expand.

Harvey Carruthers, CEO of Fife Young Carers, picked up the award at a ceremony in Glasgow’s Radisson Blu on 20th June.

He said: "We would like to dedicate this award to young carers everywhere, who trust organisations like Fife Young Carers to support them for as long as they need, to celebrate their lives, and help achieve their dreams."

The Scottish Charity Awards, which celebrates the best of the voluntary sector, is run annually by the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO).
