Young Carers Action Day 2024: Fair Futures for Young Carers in Dundee

At Carers of Dundee, we are thrilled to announce our participation in this year’s Young Carers Action Day, advocating for better support and fair futures for the young carers in our community. With approximately 30,000 young carers in Scotland, it is crucial to shed light on their incredible contributions and ensure they are supported to ensure a fair future.

Save the Date: Showcase Event on Wednesday, 13 March 2024

Join us at Scrapantics on the top floor of the Wellgate Centre, Dundee, from 12-4 pm, as we highlight Dundee as a city committed to supporting its young carers. This event aims to showcase the strides we’ve made, foster collaboration, and spark discussions on how we can continue to create an environment where young carers can thrive.

Connecting with Local Organisations and Employers

We are involving local organisations that provide any kind of support to young carers and their families. They are invaluable in creating a network of resources for the well-being of young carers. Additionally, we are inviting local businesses and employers that are Carer Positive, recognising the importance of supporting young carers in their employment journey.
