Support for parents and carers

As a parent or carer, you have a leading role when your child is making decisions about their career. That’s why it’s important to be prepared and feel confident when they come to you for advice. 

Skills Development Scotland (SDS) is still here to support you both in the months ahead.  

We can provide one-to-one career information, advice and guidance services. To speak to an adviser please call 0800 917 8000​​​​​​​. Our helpline is open Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm. You can also use our live chat. The button will appear when there is an adviser available.

Find advice on having career conversations with your child in our parents and carers section and find more information on this page.
