Useful Resources for Carers

As a carer you may be concerned about how coronavirus will impact your health, the health of the person you care for and/or your caring role. Lanarkshire Carers Centre have provided some useful information and guidance to help you understand the current situation and the impact this will have on their services. The Scottish Government has also issued advice for unpaid carers on Coronavirus (COVID-19).

There are a wide range of resources available both locally and nationally for carers.  Carers can use these links to go directly to the websites of the listed organisations to find out about the range of supports and services available.

Many of these organisations will be able to offer carers information, advice, guidance and signposting.
