This week we have another Young Carer takeover for you! This time, Sam spoke to Janine from Education Scotland, Hannah from Carers Policy, and Kelly from Carers Trust about how the education system in Scotland is working for and with young carers. They discuss changes that have come about during COVID-19, what schools are doing to keep young people safe, and how organisations work together to provide the best support possible to young people and young carers.
We ran over time a bit this week so Hannah from the Carers Policy Team at the Scottish Government has provided written answers to some of the questions we didn’t get to ask. Click here to read them.
