R&R Young Carers Fund Officially Launches


The Royal Caledonian Education Trust: Scotland’s Armed Forces Charity’s new R&R Young Carers Fund officially opens on as of today. 

We are delighted to be able to launch our R&R Young Carers Fund through generous support from the Scottish Government Veterans Fund managed by Veterans Scotland.

Armed Forces Young Carers can apply for up to £250 to spend on a respite item or activity of their choice. This can be alone, with friends, or with their cared-for person or another family member.

With the current COVID19 restrictions in mind, the activity does not have to be a holiday break or day activity, it can be anything that suits the young carer’s needs.

Please note that either the Carer or one of their parents must have a link to Scotland for example being born there, living, working or going to school there or having a meaningful link to Scotland. We can still provide support even if the parent with the connection to Scotland or the Armed Forces has died, or is no longer in your life.
