Crossroads Survey Results July 2020 01st August 2020 Mags Todd
Carers Trust Scotland has conducted a survey of young carers (aged 12 to 17) and young adult carers (aged 18 to 25) in Scotland to find out how they have been impacted by Coronavirus. The findings are important and represent the only national base of evidence on how young carers and young adult carers in Scotland have been impacted by Coronavirus. The results are extremely concerning. They show increases in stress, and a steep decline in mental health among young carers and young adult carers. They also highlight how the pandemic and lockdown has negatively impacted on young carers education.

Here are some headline findings:

45% of young carers and 68% of young adult carers in Scotland say their mental health is worse as a result of Coronavirus. 71% of young carers and 85% of young adult carers in Scotland who responded to the survey were more worried about the future since coronavirus 58% of young carers in Scotland say their education is suffering as a result of Coronavirus 74% of young carers and 73% of young adult carers in Scotland who responded to the survey say they feel less connected to other than they did before the pandemic.
