Skye and Lochalsh Community Care Forum - Young Carers

We promote the welfare and potential of children and young adults from 5 to 18 years of age, whose life is adversely affected because of the need to take responsibility for the care of someone who is chronically ill, has a disability, impairment or mental ill health or is affected by alcohol or substance abuse.

We provide one to one and drop in support, weekly support groups and quarterly respite breaks to help young carers be children and young people first. We provide safe and fun environments which combat isolation, improve access to information and training, build confidence, self esteem and resilience so young carers and their families are recognised, acknowledged and better supported.
