Young Carer Action Day Report 22 and 2023 Date

The young carers subgroup four year action plan ended in 2022 and the group are pleased to highlight a report outlining our key achievements over the period of the plan for your information.

During that time the group led on the implementation of the Carers (Scotland) Act 2016 and supported the development of the positive partnerships between Dundee Carers Centre, schools and other key partners – with young carers at the heart – which has seen such a significant increase in the numbers of young carers identified and supported in the City.

Despite these significant achievements the subgroup recognises that there are many areas of improvement and development required and so have developed an ambitious new multi-year action plan to ensure that young carers are identified and supported by all of our agencies and communities.
