EYC Membership – New Service Launch

EYC Membership Service for Information and Advice

On 7th June 2023, EYC launched our brand new EYC Membership Service!

This is a service offering information, advice, support and signposting to those young people aged 12+ in the North East and South East of Edinburgh who either no longer have a caring role but still need a bit of support, or who do have a caring role, but don’t need intensive support and just want to check in now and again for ad-hoc support. It is also open to parents and guardians of young carers under 12, and siblings of other young carers.

The EYC Membership service has a core focus on Carers’ Rights, and offers the following support:

  • Phone and text information and advice line
  • Live social media chats with a Worker
  • Referrals to other local support services
  • Access to grants and financial support
  • Help with housing
  • Health and wellbeing support
  • EYC Membership card and Young Scot cards (lots of discounts!)
  • Invitations to EYC events, twice per year
  • Young Carer Statements & Adult Carer Support Plans
  • Newsletters

…and more!
