Young carers, aged 11-18 can now access a special range of opportunities - totally for free with their Young Scot Card! 

The offers have been designed by young carers, with benefits such as free cinema tickets, first aid training and lots of other discounts and exciting offers, exclusively for young carers!

The Young Scot Package is the first element in a wider package of support set for young carers, including the Young Carer Grant and free bus travel for recipients of the grant which will hopefully be available to young carers soon. 

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon visited Dundee Carers Centre to launch the package. She said: “This government has always been committed to improving carers’ rights and providing them with the support and extra help they deserve.

“We want as many young carers as possible to access these discounts and opportunities which will enable them to enjoy themselves and look after their own health and wellbeing. I would encourage young carers to sign up through the Young Scot website to make the most of these offers.”

To sign up, all you you need is your Young Scot Card
