Fife Young Carers support young carers up to the age of 25 years in Fife, many of whom come from areas of multiple deprivation. We offer a range of services to help young carers develop their skills and confidence, achieve balance in their lives, and just enjoy acting like any other child their age.
Young Carers have been catered for by small local groups in Fife since 1995 before finally amalgamating to become Fife Young Carers in 2003. Since then the service has expanded significantly and now employs a manager and 24 members of staff, along with a bank of sessional workers. The delivery of its service is also supported by volunteers.
Fife Young Carers is managed by a voluntary Board of Trustees who oversee the development of the service across Fife.
Fife Young Carers believe all young and young adult carers should be recognised, supported and be given a voice.
