Help & Support
Carers Link supports and encourages carers of all ages, providing support, information, advocacy, courses, groups – and a listening ear when you need one. Our aim is to help you to have the best possible quality of life, both while you are caring for someone and if your caring role ends. No matter who you are or who you care for, Carers Link is here to support you.
You may be caring for just a few hours each week or doing it 24/7; you may have found yourself suddenly in this role, or perhaps the person you care for has gradually needed more and more help over the years. Whatever your circumstances, we are your local organisation dedicated to carers who live or care in East Dunbartonshire.
This project works as part of Carers Link and is focused on supporting Young Carers and Young Adult Carers aged between 8-25 years.
Carers have a number of rights, which have been brought together in the Carers (Scotland) Act
We are normally open Monday to Friday from 8.30am to 5.00 pm, but appointments (by phone or online) out with these hours can be arranged. Currently mail is not being picked up from the office on a regular basis so if possible please email or phone us. During evenings and weekends, if you or someone you know requires urgent social work support, please call 0800 811 505.
