Young Carer Grant Roadshow for stakeholders

16 September 2019

Young carer

Young Carer Grant is due to launch this autumn. The grant is a new yearly payment of £300 for carers aged 16 to 18 who live in Scotland. Young carers can spend the cash payment as they choose and can apply if they are at school, in further education, employed or unemployed.

We want to make sure that stakeholders have all the information they need about Young Carer Grant before it launches and will be running a series of roadshow events for stakeholders throughout late September and October.

The stakeholder roadshows will give you information about eligibility, how clients can apply and provide an opportunity for you to ask any questions you might have.
