Education Policy

Our Schools Awareness Raising Campaign is supported by local and national policy, strategy and guidance, which aim to ensure that young carers are identified, assessed and that the barriers they may face in education are removed at the earliest opportunity.  The most relevant policies and strategies for our continued work include:

 

  • Getting it Right for Young Carers, The Young Carers Strategy for Scotland, 2010 - 2015
  • Carers (Scotland) Bill 2015
  • Curriculum for Excellence
  • Education (Additional Support for Learning) (Scotland) Act 2004, as amended by the 2009 Act
  • Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014 and Getting it Right for Every Child
  • Edinburgh Joint Carers Strategy, 2104 - 2017
