Information Plus has worked with the Young Carers Alliance, Princess Royal Trust for Carers and our local Crossroads Carers Centre to develop a unique interactive CD-Rom resource to help young carers talk about their lives, what the issues and problems are, and what help they would find most useful.?See if I Care??is designed to be interactive, child friendly and up to date both in format and function, and more accessible, relevant and engaging than traditional?paper-based tools.
Specifically?See if I Care??is:
- Easy to use
- Supported by in-built training materials
Speaking at the Princess Royal Trust for Carers Young Carers policy conference where the tool was launched, Shona Robison, Minister for Public Health said?‘… The See If I Care? tool will support and complement the?Getting It Right For Every Child approach. I welcome this tool being launched?today. This interactive tool will provide valuable detail specific to the?situation of being a young carer to make sure that help is appropriate,?proportionate and timely.’
‘an excellent resource … young carers loved it and found it much more?interesting than the worksheets that I have used in the past’ ?Ashley Smith, Young Carers Officer, Stirling
