Giving young carers a voice

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.
