New Young Carers Mascots

Thursday 23rd June 2011

We would like to introduce you to Eryc and Trayc – our young carer cartoon characters. Thanks to funding from the Scottish Government, The Princess Royal Trust for Carers have created two young carer mascot figures called Eryc and Trayc to help promote greater awareness of young carers among primary school children, their families and teachers. The idea is also for children who are caring to find out where they can get help and support.

The website is here – http://www.erycandtrayc.com/ – and this, along with an animated film about Eryc and Trayc was launched officially during Carers’ Week by Michael Matheson, the Minister for Public Health, and Lord of the Rings star Billy Boyd at a primary school in Dundee.
