The Carers Trust representative for the Scottish Youth Parliament Lauren Baigrie, is currently consulting with young carers all over Scotland, identifying the challenges they face and feeding them back to the Scottish Government.
Lauren will present her findings as part of the 'Right Here, Right Now' campaign on the 18th April, where a specially selected group of politicians will be present to hear and act upon issues young people are facing across the country.
To give your young people the chance to participate we would appreciate if any interested young people could complete this survey. Follow the link here:
Lauren is really keen that in her role as MSYP she represents as many young carer's views as possible.
We would be very grateful for your help in achieving this.
