2021 Young Carer Voice: Consultation Event
An important part of the Scottish Young Carers Festival is providing an opportunity for young carers to have their voices heard by key decision makers.
In 2021, we hosted a “Young Carer Voice: Consultation Event” online. 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.
