Social Security Experience Panels: Young Carer Grant - initial findings

Findings from the initial research with young carers ahead of the introduction of the new Young Carer Grant.

Next Steps

This work was carried out early in the design of the new Young Carer Grant to ensure that the voice of young carers in embedded from the initial decision making about what the new grant should be like – for example when drafting the regulations about how the grant should operate, and when formulating approaches to the operation of the grant with the people designing the service. We have invited young carers who participated to stay involved through the Young Carer Panel – this was optional for all participants. We are additionally looking to engage with young carers who are not part of a formal group and will use this research to help us do so effectively.
