The project offers services, support and information to young carers in Dundee aged 5-16 years. The Upbeet project works with young adult carers aged 16-30.
The UPBEET project can help young adult carers aged 16-30 years access confidential information and support in areas including personal development, raising confidence and self esteem, entitlement to benefits and CV/interview skills, as well as accessing flexible opportunities to combine education, training, or employment with their caring role.
A young carer is a child or young person who has a caring role and/or is affected emotionally by a family member’s long-term illness, disability, mental health or alcohol/addiction problems.
