About the organisation
The Network was formed in 1998 by unpaid carers to promote the interests of unpaid carers in South Lanarkshire. Our purpose is to meet the needs of carers who provide help and support to another person who due to illness, frailty or disability would not be able to live independently. We want to support everyone who cares for another through our network. We work in partnership with other agencies and third sector organisations to offer opportunities to influence and improve services which impact on unpaid carers.
Our remit remains to raise the profile of unpaid carers allowing them to have voice in the decision making process at a strategic level. We will support carers to use their skills and expertise by providing them with opportunities and facilities to meet and discuss emerging issues. We are South Lanarkshire’s primary carer information conduit signposting carers, statutory bodies and employers to partner agencies.
