Fair Futures for Young Carers Mural

We are excited to announce that Young Carers Voice, has collaborated with local artist Diane Selbie, Scrapantics and the Wellgate Centre Dundee to create a mural to celebrate Young Carers Action Day.

The mural is based on this year’s theme: “A Fair Future for Young Carers” and aims to symbolise the transformation, resilience, and strength of young carers. Using a butterfly at the heart of the artwork, each Young Carers Voice member designed a different section of the wings to capture each of their unique differences. They wanted to highlight that fair futures means as well as recognising them as young carers, they are still individuals with their own wants and passions.

Additionally, the mural is decorated with flowers from around the world, each representing the diverse backgrounds and stories of young carers.

The mural is currently being painted at the bottom level of the Wellgate Shopping Centre Dundee and aims to be completed in early March 2024.

If you are a budding influencer or selfie lover, we encourage you to use the mural as a selfie background and help spread awareness of young carers and the support available to them. Don’t forget to tag @CarerofDundee and use our hashtag #YCV2024.

Stay tuned for more updates and behind-the-scenes sneak peeks.

Young Carers Voice is a city-wide group of young carers (aged between 14-18 years old), supported by Dundee Carers Centre,  who meet to influence change for young carers in the City.
