Young carers in Aberdeenshire can apply for a Health and Wellbeing Grant to take time out from their caring role and enjoy activities, hobbies or spend time with friends. Young carers can decide what to buy with the grant, as long as it helps to look after their health and wellbeing. The grant is a one-off purchase that does not need to be paid back.
To apply for the grant, contact Quarriers Aberdeenshire Carer Support Service on 01467 538700 to ask for help to complete a Young Carer Statement. This will determine if a young carer can apply for the grant or would benefit more from an individual budget for ongoing support.
