EAST LOTHIAN YOUNG CARERS
East Lothian Young Carers is a local charity established in 2002 to provide support to Young Carers aged 0 to 24 living in East Lothian.
We provide information, support and breaks from caring to young carers and their families.
Inspired by a life-changing event, East Lothian Young Carers was established in 2000 in San Francisco, CA. Over the years, we have become one of the most trusted and effective charitable foundations, working hard to improve the lives of those in need. Here you can learn more about who we are and what we do.
“The young carers has helped me so much over the years in various different things. They helped me become a more confident individual not just with being more socially active but also in my schoolwork and have supported me and encouraged me to do my best and believed in me. They gave me the chance to be more like people my age with the clubs and not have to be worried or stressed for the time I was there.”
