Young Carers for MAKI (Mid Argyll, Kintyre & Islay) – Cool2Talk

On behalf of the Scottish Government via the local Argyll and Bute Health and Social care Partnership (HSCP) MAYDS holds the commissioning service to carry out Young Carers statements and support across Mid Argyll, Kintyre and Islay (MAKI).  We have 3 Young Carers workers who work with young people up to 18 years old and have been referred to the service due to a caring role either in the home or for a family member etc.  MAYDS Young Carers workers will meet with these young people individually and undertake an assessment which is known as a Young Carers Statement.  From the statement staff will get a better understanding of the young person, what they do, how they are coping and how best we can support or help them.  When the statement is complete staff will signpost young people depending on their needs and undertake reviews with them on a regular basis.  In addition, they will help young carers to access the Young Carers Grant.,information%20contact%2001546%20603%20231.
