Giving young carers a voice

Have your say

There are an estimated 30,000 young carers in Scotland and East Dunbartonshire Council is supporting Carers Trust Scotland’s new campaign ‘Time to be Heard’ to give them a voice.

Carers dedicate their time unpaid, for someone who due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction who cannot cope without their support.

Carers Trust Scotland works with young people aged 14-25 to set out recommendations for national and local government.
