Carers Link provides information and support to unpaid carers who live in East Dunbartonshire or care for someone who lives 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 we can help you.
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
Carers and COVID-19
The situation with Coronavirus (COVID-19) is constantly evolving, and it is a worrying time for carers and those they care for. Carers Link is still here to help local carers, and our staff are available for you to talk to – just call us on 0800 975 2131 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We can help you with information about how the latest government guidelines affect your caring role, and how carers can access the COVID-19 vaccine, and we may be able to help you access Personal Protective Equipment. You can find out more on our COVID-19 page.
Who is a carer
Anyone who provides (or intends to provide) care for another person is a carer. The exceptions to this are if the only reason for providing care is that the person is under 18, or if you are caring because you have a contract or as voluntary work.
You can be caring for someone for any number of hours, and you do not need to be providing a substantial amount of care for some on a regular basis.
A young carer is any carer who is under the age of 18, or who is 18 or over and still attending school.
