Carers First is open to any existing unpaid carers who are interested in supporting, representing and voicing the needs and rights of unpaid carers in the area. The group is responsible for monitoring the implementation of the Carers Act and has helped to write the Interim Scottish Borders Carers Strategy.
They gather and share relevant information about the issues facing carers in the Scottish Borders to ensure the voice of carers is heard. They also invite Health and Social Work leads, and others, to attend to enable their message to be delivered directly and to give the opportunity to ask questions and raise relevant issues.
The group currently meets every 3 months at The Kingsknowes Hotel in Galashiels. Please use contact details below to join the group
