East Lothian Young Carers are Enjoy Leisure’s charity of choice for this year and with this being National Carers Week, we would like to shine a spotlight on the work that East Lothian Young Carers do across the county. Here is a link to their website Young Carers | East Lothian Young Carers | Young headlines include:

  •  East Lothian Young Carers is a local charity established in 2002 to provide support to young carers from birth to 24 and their families in East Lothian.
  • They are one of the oldest young carers services in the country beginning life in 1999 as a project within Carers of East Lothian.
  • Their Vision is – “The role and contribution Young Carers make to society is recognised and they receive the support and information they need to allow them to enjoy their childhood, reach their potential and make a positive transition to adulthood.
