Young Carer STatement

Renfrewshire Council has a duty to support young carers by preparing a Young Carer Statement.

From 1st of April 2018, all young carers are entitled to a Young Carer Statement.

Young Carer Resource Worker Cathy Mearns, from Renfrewshire Council will complete Young Carer Statements.

When completing a Young Carers Statement Cathy will find out more about the young person and how their caring role may affect their schoolwork, job or overall wellbeing.

Young carers will also be able to tell Cathy about the things you like or would like to do, for example clubs or sports.

Completing a statement will help get you the right support, if you need it.

To contact Cathy, call 07534 156 470  or email
