Carers Link was established in 2004 as a registered charity (Registered charity number SC034447) to support unpaid carers in East Dunbartonshire. If you look after a family member or friend who cannot manage without your support, you are a carer. You may be “doing what anyone would do”, but there is support and information available that can help you .
Here at Carers Link we work with carers who live in East Dunbartonshire, or care for someone in the area. The person you care for might be living with a disability, an illness, a mental health problem or have issues around substance misuse or addiction. We know that each carer’s situation is unique and will talk things through with you – and listen to you – to ensure that we tailor support to what you need.
You may simply be looking for some information, or you may go on to access advocacy, one-to-one support or our sessions and groups for carers. However large or small your query, we’re here to help.
No matter who you are or who you care for, Carers Link is here to support you.
