Support to Care Experienced Young Carers

As part of our commitment to Corporate Parenting, young people who are care experienced or a young carer receive enhanced support from Thriving Communities which starts from senior phase in school and continues throughout their employability journey.

Thriving Communities have dedicated workers who have links with partners including Education, Skills Development Scotland (SDS), Social Work, The Champions Board and Young Carers Centre which helps to support young people into employment or further education.

South Ayrshire Council Modern Apprenticeship opportunities can be ring-fenced for young people who are care experience or a young carer and support is put in place to help young people access these opportunities.
