A national campaign to help young carers receive more help from the government has been backed by the Scottish Borders Council.
Three teenagers from the Scottish Youth Parliament (SYP) lobbied councillors for their support today, 26 June.
The SYP 'Care. Fair. Share' campaign aims to ensure young carers are treated fairly by society and in government policies.
Finlay Duff, 18 from Jedburgh, Scott Redmond from Hawick and Nicola Pringle from Oxton, both 17, are all part of the SYP and went to the council for their support.
Finlay and Nicola gave a presentation to Scottish Borders Council members this morning, 26 June, who offered their support for the motion.
