Are you a Carer?
We can help you…
Currently approximately 1 in 7 of the Scottish population provide care and support to a family member, friend or neighbour. Many people don’t recognise themselves as Carers. You don’t have to be related to, or live with, the person you care for. Carers come from all walks of life, all cultures and can be any age. When you become an unpaid Carer, it might be hard to know where to start. Coping day to day and responding to the needs of others can be difficult.
Keep an eye on this page where nearer the time the Network will post a list of where and when the staff are for Carers Week – so come along join in the fun and help keep Carers Connected. If you know of any event going on during Carers Week and you think our Carers should know about it, give us a call on 01698 285163 or email email@example.com

The Network hold Carers meetings on the first Thursday of the month with the exception of July’s being the second Thursday. These meetings are to give carers a chance to get some peer support by talking to other carers.
Meetings are also a chance to talk about the issues you are experiencing in your caring role.
No need to book just pop along.
These meetings are bi-monthly in either the Hamilton or East Kilbride area. Check below for next meeting date and venue.
