EYC response to Depute Prime Minister's statement

9 March 2017

"Edinburgh Young Carers Project welcomes the statement made by the Deputy First Minister in the Scottish parliament yesterday. The Named Person service is of great importance to young carers, from the very young to those over 16 years of age, as many do not know where to go to get the support they need. Having a central point of contact for advice and support, which the Named person will provide to young carers, will be greatly helpful to them. We welcome that the Deputy First Minister has made it clear that sharing information with or by the Named Person will be done on the basis of consent, except for exceptional circumstances such as where there is significant risk of harm. Young carers and their families want to be involved in discussing and arranging the help and support they need.”

Margaret Murphy, Chief Executive
