Lanarkshire Carers

Claimed

Lanarkshire Carers is a resource for carers across Lanarkshire to access information, advice and a range of direct support services to support them in their caring roles. We work with and for carers to develop and deliver services that make a positive difference to their lives.

Lanarkshire Carers is commissioned by Health and Social Care North Lanarkshire and South Lanarkshire Health and Social Care Partnership to provide Adult Carer Support Services.

Early intervention and prevention is key to ensuring carers continue to manage and do not reach crisis point. Lanarkshire Carers works in partnership with a range of organisations and services that can help carers.

The support and services that we provide:

• Adult Carer Support Plans
• Emotional and practical support on a one to one basis with the carer.
• Support to access a short break, enabling carers to take some time out from the routine of caring.
• Helping carers to feel confident in their caring role and look after their own health and wellbeing.
• Support when engaging with social work and other relevant partner organisations.
• Empowering carers to sustain their caring role through a self-management approach.
• Facilitating Carer Support Groups that help reduce isolation for carers and provide peer support.
