What can Shetland Carers offer?
We can offer information, advice, signposting and support to local carers and carers groups to help make life a little easier for carers and the people they care for.
Our support worker can:
Provide a 'listening ear' to carers
Undertake home visits throughout Shetland for those who find it difficult to make it in to Market House, Lerwick
Provide opportunities for carers to take part in social activities which include regular support groups
Arrange training for carers in-house and with partner organisations
Help with advice on short breaks/respite facilities and on our carers short break grant scheme
Promote greater awareness of carers and their needs, and to give a positive community identity to carers and those involved in caring
Talk to carers and carers groups on issues affecting carers
Act as a voice to promote the needs of carers through the Shetland Carers Strategy Group and other avenues
We can also help carers access short breaks. If you would like to register with our service, you will receive any information we send out such as our quarterly newsletter. There may be other support we can offer that might be helpful for you in your caring role.
You can register with Shetland Carers from the home page of our website. The 'Sign Up' section is in blue near the bottom.
You can find us on Facebook and Twitter at Shetland Carers.
