Schools gain award for going the extra mile to support young carers!

Edinburgh Young Carers are thrilled to announce that four schools have been granted the We Care, Schools for Young Carers Award. Despite incredibly challenging circumstances, three schools in Edinburgh and a school in Fife have achieved the Award which celebrates good practice in identifying and supporting young carers. Edinburgh Young Carers have awarded the “We Recognise” level of their Scotland-wide We Care: Schools for Young Carers Award to Lochgelly High School, James Gillespie’s High School, Niddrie Mill Primary School and Tollcross Primary School in recognition of the contributions the schools have made to improving outcomes for young carers.
