We work closely with schools across the city to ensure that young carers are identified and supported within their educational setting.
A named Young Carer Coordinator and Dundee Carers Centre Support Worker is linked to each school and can offer practical and emotional support to young carers and families. Young Carers Ambassadors within some secondary schools can offer emotional and peer support to young carers.
