Befriending Services For Young Carers

EDM number 1141 in 2015-16, proposed by Corri Wilson on 24/02/2016.
Categorised under the topics of Children and families and Community care.

That this House recognises the needs of younger carers who may struggle to balance caring with education, financial responsibilities and emotional well-being; appreciates the benefits young carers gain from the practical and emotional support given through befriending services; acknowledges the valuable work undertaken in supporting young carers by a range of voluntary organisations across the UK; and congratulates Unity Enterprise on its successful application for a Young Start grant of £49,880 to deliver a befriending service for young carers in Ayrshire.

This motion has been signed by a total of 27 MPs.
