New campaign to support young carers

Pain Con­cern was at the launch of a real­ly impor­tant cam­paign to sup­port young car­ers on Jan­u­ary 23. Care. Fair. Share. aims to get a fair­er deal for Scotland’s esti­mat­ed 100,000 young car­ers – equal to ten per­cent of the school-age pop­u­la­tion. As the annu­al Nation­al Cam­paign sup­port­ed by the Scot­tish Youth Par­lia­ment (SYP), the ini­tia­tive is in a strong posi­tion to affect pos­i­tive change for this vul­ner­a­ble group.

The cam­paign tar­gets three areas:

  1. The Edu­ca­tion­al Main­te­nance Allowance which many car­ers lose because of prob­lems with main­tain­ing atten­dance due to care commitments;
  2. Get­ting more finan­cial sup­port for young car­ers strug­gling to afford fur­ther education;
  3. Alle­vi­at­ing the cost of trav­el for young car­ers who often have to make repeat­ed jour­neys each day between home and their place of work or edu­ca­tion to keep up with their care commitments.

Pain Con­cern is inter­est­ed to hear from young car­ers look­ing after peo­ple in pain as we seek to raise aware­ness of this neglect­ed issue. Please con­tact us on face­book, twit­ter or by email: comment@painconcern.org.uk
