Drawing shows a family in a love heart.

These resources from Carers Trust Scotland aim to help young carers and family members speak about unpaid caring roles within the family and to reach out for support when it is needed. 

There are two resource packs:

  • Together: A Whole Family Approach for Young Carers – designed to complement the work practitioners already do when supporting young carers, this resource pack offers practical steps, guidance and useful resources.
  • Caring Within the Family: Starting that conversation, together - these are conversation cards that support families to initiate open conversations about the impact caring roles are having on the family. They also signpost young carers and their families to useful resources and services.
