Connecting Carers provides information, support and training to unpaid carers and young carers across Highland.
Connecting Young Carers recognise the needs of young people in caring roles. We work pro-actively and effectively to achieve better outcomes for young carers. In partnership with others we work to ensure that young carers are seen, heard and supported to develop their skills, confidence and self-esteem, helping them reach their full potential.
Connecting Young Carers support unpaid carers and young carers towards achieving the following outcomes:
- Young carers receive information, resources and support to enable them to maintain an effective and appropriate caring role.
- The health, education and social care workforce is well informed, knowledgeable, trained and skilled in identifying young carers, meeting their needs and engaging with them as partners in care.
To ensure that young carers are seen, heard and supported.
What can Connecting Young Carers do for young carers?
Host events which help build new friendships, develop skills and allow young carers to get a short break.
Provide useful information to help you in your caring role.
- Include young carers in our consultation exercises, where their ideas and opinions help us develop the best services for young carers.
- Let young carers know about, and help access, grants which might pay for a school trip, an activity or some time away from caring.
- Signpost young carers to useful information about the condition of the person being cared for.
