Volunteering at our Scottish Young Carers Festival!

Young carers are young people under 18 who provide unpaid care for a family member or a friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or addiction problems.

The Scottish Young Carers Festival provides the opportunity for young carers to meet other young people in similar situations, to have a break from caring and of course, have fun! The event is also attended by key decision makers where young carers can share their experiences, the impact that caring has on them and suggest changes that could make their lives better.

We need lots of volunteers to make sure our Festival is a safe and enjoyable event!

‘It’s an amazing event to be part of and to help run smoothly.’

We spoke with Campbell who volunteered at our 2023 Scottish Young Carers Festival!  Read more about Campbell’s experience below.
