Young Carers Statement
Young carers have the right to a Young Carers Statement, which is a plan to make sure a young carer gets the support they need.
A Young Carers Statement starts as a conversation between the young carer and an adult of their choice. This is usually their worker from Dundee Carers Centre or a staff member from their school. In Dundee there is a workbook designed in collaboration with young carers to support this discussion.
If the young carer already has a Child/Young Person’s Plan as part of a Team Around the Child process, their plan will be reviewed and information from the Young Carers Statement will be added to it.
