Young Carers Voice Roadshows

March 15, 2018

Young Carers Voice are working with Dundee City Council to host Young Carer Roadshows within all secondary schools in Dundee throughout March.

The roadshows will raise awareness of young carers, and the support available through the Policy for Young Carers in School, from Dundee Carers Centre and other local agencies. Young Carers Voice are also consulting on the proposals for young carers in the new Carers Act. The results of this consultation will be fed back to the Carers Partnership to inform the implementation of Young Carer Statements, and the development of supports for young carers in Dundee.

The first roadshow will be held at Baldragon Academy on Monday 18 March 2018 with a visit from Aileen Campbell, Minister for Public Health, Joe Fitzpatrick MSP, Audrey May, Head of Schools, Alexis Chappell, Chair of the Carers Partnership and Gregor Murray, Convener of Children & Families Committee.
