This report brings together the consultation feedback gathered at the 2022 Scottish Young Carers Festival.
In 2021, Carers Trust Scotland hosted an online Young Carer Voice: Consultation Event as part of the Scottish Young Carers Festival. This event provided a platform for young carers to share their views on a range of topics, take part in meaningful consultation in an interactive way and speak directly with decision makers. This report and poster summarises issues raised by young carers, action taken by Carers Trust Scotland and how decision makers can support young carers in their role.
These independent evaluations review the successful delivery of the two About Time Grant programmes, Time for Change and Take Action and Support, which addressed the issues that can lead to young adult carers becoming disengaged from society.
