Are you between 13 and 25?
Do you provide assistance or support to someone, for example a parent, a sibling, a grandparent, another relative or friend who is in need for care, support or supervision?
You might be a young carer and this project is for you!
Thanks to the funding provided by the European Commission through the Erasmus+ programme, a group of organizations from Germany, Scotland, Ireland, Italy and Austria is working to find new ways to support young people like you to better cope with the situation they are experiencing and to reduce the negative consequences it might have.
We will develop useful tools for professionals with whom you might be in contact with (such as teachers, youth workers and social workers), for instance awareness raising material and scales to assess the needs of young carers and we will pilot them in our countries to assess their usability, effectiveness and fitness for purpose.
If you have questions or are interested to know more about the EPYC project or to participate to the activities, please feel free to contact one of the project partners
