Who we are

Who we are

Fife Young Carers SCIO is a local charity committed to improving the support and information provided to Young Carers in Fife.

Young Carers have been catered for by small local groups in Fife since 1995 before finally amalgamating to become Fife Young Carers in 2003. Since then the service has expanded significantly and now employs a manager and 15 members of staff, along with a bank of sessional workers. The delivery of its service is also supported by volunteers.
Fife Young Carers is managed by a voluntary board of trustees who oversee the development of the service across Fife. 

In 2017 Fife Young Carers became a Scottish Charity Incorporated Organisation, with all assets being transferred to it, from Fife Young Carers.

Fife Young Carers believe all young and young adult carers should be recognised, supported and be given a voice.
