Edinburgh Young Carers

Respite and support for young people aged 5 to 25 who care for someone at home.

Edinburgh Young Carers works to improve the lives and wellbeing of young carers in Edinburgh by raising awareness, and providing emotional and practical support.

It offers group activities where young carers can share experiences, make new friends and have fun, as well one-to-one sessions with a development worker, and counselling where needed. There is also specialist support for young people affected by drug or alcohol problems at home.

In addition, the charity offers young people the chance to get away and take a break from their caring role on a day trip, a residential weekend or sometimes longer, if circumstances allow.
