Are You a Carer?

If you are please let us know - we may be able to help you

South Lanarkshire Carers Network

If you are a carer please let our Receptionist know.

A Carer is anyone who, unpaid, looks after a friend or family member who can't cope alone due to illness, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction.

Anyone can become a Carer. Carers come from all walks of life, all cultures and can be any age. Many people don't recognise themselves as carers and are missing out on vital supports and services they may be eligible to.


The Network Partnership and Engagement Team are Pauline, Jade and Richard. Our Lead Practice contact is Pauline McIntosh.

South Lanarkshire Health and Social Care Partnership wants to hear from you if you look after a friend, a family member or a neighbour, as we are keen to hear what kind of support you need.

A new law came into effect in April 2018 to support people who provide unpaid care (carers) and we want to ensure we understand your needs and those in our communities who are supporting others to live their day to day lives with or without outside help.

Any information you give will be treated in strict confidence and you do not have to give your name or any other personal details that you don’t want to. All answers will be anonymised and any information given will be used only for the purposes of developing a Carers Strategy that meets the needs of those living in South Lanarkshire.

Thank you for taking the time to give us your views and please encourage others to complete the survey too.
