Research findings of the experiences of LGBT young adult carers will be launched at an event in Glasgow on Friday 26 February.
This event will formally launch the findings from Carers Trust Scotland’s new research entitled Young people caring OUT there: experiences of LGBT young adult carers in Scotland. LGBT young adult carers will be presenting at the event and will be in attendance to share their experiences. There is very limited research that currently exists about the experiences of LGBT young adult carers and we believe that it's their Time to be Heard.
There are an estimated 30,000 young adult carers in Scotland who care, unpaid, for a family member or friend who could not cope without their support. Young adult carers are often hidden in their communities. The important role that they play in unpaid caring is often misunderstood. Time to be Heard for Young Adult Carers is Carers Trust's campaign initiative that is all about getting young adult carers' voices heard by the people who can make a real difference to their lives.
The event is taking place at the Scottish Youth Theatre, The Old Sheriff Court, 105 Brunswick Street, Glasgow, G1 1TF from 10.00 - 12.00 on Friday 26 February 2016. Please RSVP by Thursday 18 February 2016 to firstname.lastname@example.org or call us on 0300 123 2008.
