The 2013 Scottish Young Carers Festival was the sixth to take place and the biggest yet. Over 600 young carers from across Scotland came together for a weekend of fun, respite and consultation. The Festival report which details the consultation feedback from the young carers about what would help them in their caring role is now available. Read the report here.

The DVD which shows highlights from the weekend and footage of the young carers talking about the issues that are most important to them can be viewed here.

The seventh Scottish Young Carers Festival will take place from Tuesday 29 July to Thursday 31 July at the Broomlee Centre, West Linton. Carers Trust Scotland leads on the delivery of the Festival and is supported by several carer and national children's organisations.
