Young Carers Resource Pack Pilot Launch
Dundee Carers Centre have developed a Young Carers Resource Pack for Young Carers; in partnership with young carers and Dundee Children and Families thanks to the Mental Health & Wellbeing Fund.
The packs will be used as a resource to support Primary Schools across the City to identify and support young carers as early as possible.
