Young Carers Take Action in Dundee!

Wednesday 16 March 2022

Young Carers Action Day is a national event which raises awareness of young carers and the incredible contribution young carers make to their families and their local communities.

Carers of Dundee are inviting your organisation, school, business or community group to celebrate the achievements of young carers you work with or support in the City and share with them how your group or organisation contributed to the increasing awareness of young carers and their rights.

Each group who registers is invited to take part in a project which contributes to the aims of the Action Day and should work with young people to do at least one of the following:

  • Raise awareness of young carers in Dundee
  • Highlight young carers rights – in particular in your school or
    organisation
  • Share and celebrate your achievements as a group or organisation or
    school in raising awareness of and supporting carers

Closing date for applications is Monday 13 December 2021
