Important Funding Success for Young Carers

20th January 2017


Our young carers service are delighted to have learned that they've been successful in gaining £340,000 of funding to support their work over the next 3 years.

The service, which supports around 300 children aged 5-to-18 across Perth & Kinross gives them access to one-to-one support, group session, respite breaks, and day trips, as well as family, social, and educational support.

PKAVS Carers Hub manager Ramond Jamieson said, "In the voluntary sector it is incredibly rare to get funding that lasts for three years. Thanks to this lottery funding we know that this is in place and that safeguards a number of positions, provides money to deliver future services and allows us to plan for the future."
