Carers Trust Scotland

Carers Trust Scotland is connected to a unique network of local carers centres and young carers’ services across Scotland. 

Some of the ways these centres provide support is by: 

  • giving information and advice 
  • providing access to often desperately-needed breaks 
  • offering advice on  education, training and employment
  • helping carers to maintain their own health and wellbeing and offering support so they do not feel isolated
  • running support schemes for young carers. There are separate young carers’ services in some areas – their contact details can be provided by the centre.
