Did you know there are carers' centres all across Scotland that can provide advice, information and support? There's no need for a referral, you can just get in touch or pop in. They can help with:
- information & advice
- emotional support
- community consultations
- activities for yourself
- providing training on a range of topics
If you're wondering if you're a carer and can therefore access the support on offer, the very fact you're here probably means you are. Carers centres help support people who are supporting or caring for someone else and who aren't getting paid for their time, it could be a relative or friend who is older, has become ill or is disabled. No matter the situation, your age or who you're supporting, if you're helping to provide care or support, carers centres are there to help.
