Finding out about the Young Carer Grant
Respondents were asked about where they would want to see information about the grant. More than three quarters of respondents (79 per cent) said that they would want to see information about the grant through young carer groups. It is worth bearing in mind that that the young carer groups were one of the routes through which this survey was advertised, so we cannot assume that this figure is reflective of young carers as a whole.
Almost three in five (57 per cent) said they would want to see information at school, and half (49 per cent) said they would want to see information on social media.

Among those who said “something else”, responses included suggestions of other public spaces like doctors’ surgeries, hospitals, libraries, cafes and bus stops; email information; and the suggestion that all of these routes should be used.
Among those who said that they would want to see social media (30 respondents), more than four in five (83 per cent) said that they use Facebook. Almost three quarters (73 per cent) said that they use Snapchat and two thirds (67 per cent) said that they use Instagram.
