Dundee Carers' Centre's Young Carers' Project has highlighted that young adult carers often have limited access to opportunities that others take for granted. Caring responsibilities can have a negative effect on their lives, including poor school attendance and attainment at school, in future education or in the work place. Poor social contact and negative health effects are also common and at times young adult carers can feel down or on their own.
Therefore, their UPBEET project can help young adult carers aged 15-30 years access confidential information and support in areas including personal development, raising confidence and self esteem, entitlement to benefits and CV/interview skills, as well as accessing flexible opportunities to combine education, training, or employment with their caring role.
