Carers Strategy

Aberdeen Health & Social Care Partnership and Aberdeen City Council have developed a Carers Strategy to help drive the implementation of the legislation. This gives Young Carers the entitlement for the first time for an assessment that will be known as a Young Carers Statement.

The Young Carers Toolkit includes approaches to help Practitioners identify and support Young Carers. Following the best practice described in the Toolkit will result in a better-informed workforce across partnership services and improved outcomes for all Young Carers in Aberdeen.
