Later this year, the Young Carers Hub will be launching a Young Carers identification card in partnership with NHS Tayside. This ID card will be offered to all young carers registered with the service. It is hoped that the card will allow young people to be better recognised by professionals as a young carer, specifically in schools and by health professionals.
We would note at this point that the ID cards are a pilot to see how well the ID cards work and the first phase is to distribute cards to 8-12 years olds, followed by secondary age young carers at a later date.
PKAVS Young Carers Service were delighted to receive a cheque from Elsie and Gus Cattanach this week.
C'Jai is a 15 year old Young Carer who we have supported over the last 2 years and this is her story.
