Carers Link East Dunbartonshire - Inspiring Scotland

Support in the Right Direction

Carers Link East Dunbartonshire

Carers Link East Dunbartonshire helps unpaid carers to understand and explore their self-directed support options as part of their caring role, have a voice and make informed choices around services and activities that could improve both their own and the cared-for person’s quality of life. Carers are supported to develop an Adult Carer Support Plan with the project liaising on their behalf with social work. Peer support activities bring together carers at the start of their social care journey, or those already managing care packages with their family, to share experiences and learning.
