Young Carers' Project
TYKES Young Carers' Project was established in 1997 to provide support to Young Carers from East Sutherland. TYKES now covers the whole of Sutherland and offers respite and support to young people between the ages of 5 and 25 who have a caring role within their home. We aim to make a positive difference in the lives and wellbeing of Young Carers and their families by offering advice along with emotional and practical support. TYKES advocates for Young Carers and raises awareness of their issues by engaging with the community, statutory agencies and other organisations.
TYKES gives each Young Carer the opportunity to take a break from their caring role in a friendly and supportive environment.
