The Bridges Project are working in partnership with East Lothian Council to deliver the Young Carers Service to 13 to 18 year olds. In addition to undertaking secondary school-based work Bridges staff will be working with young people who have left school and preparing for the next stage of their lives. They can support the creation of Young Carers Statements, provide advice and support to access services and funding and support the transition to an Adult Carers Plan. The Bridges Project also offer a range of supports to young people aged 15 to 22 years old:

  • develop personal confidence
  • improve learning outcomes
  • develop independent living skills
  • develop employability skills
