The Information Gateway for unpaid Carers in South Lanarkshire

South Lanarkshire Carers Network operates over a wide spectrum of unpaid Carer support. The aim of the Network is to ensure that unpaid Carers are empowered and enabled to continue in their Caring role while feeling supported to maintain their own good health and wellbeing. This is done by providing the Carer with comprehensive information and raising their issues at local and national level.

Who is a Carer?

Carers support a family member, spouse, partner, relative or friend of any age who needs help and support to manage a range of daily living tasks. This may be due to a long-term condition, physical or learning disability, mental health problems, frailty associated with older age or an addiction.

Carers may provide assistance with personal care, emotional support, managing and administering medication, undertaking practical tasks such as shopping, cooking and providing transport, helping to manage finances and ensuring that the person is able to maintain outside interests and friendships. Distinct from paid care workers, carers receive no wage for the support they provide.
