The Scottish Young Carers Festival 2020 - online events
The Scottish Young Carers Festival, which aims to give young carers a break from their responsibilities, has been cancelled in its 13th year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, Carers Trust Scotland will instead hold a series of online events including mindfulness and yoga sessions, magic shows and live music online from the 05 to the 07 August 2020.
The Trust has also introduced “Life In Lockdown” – an online platform where young people can share their experiences, not only with key decision makers, but also with one another across Scotland.
