A carer is someone of any age who looks after and supports a relative or friend who, because of their disability, illness, frailty or addiction, would not otherwise be able to live independently at home.
Carers of West Dunbartonshire is an independent, voluntary organisation providing support to unpaid adult carers in the local area. Through our Carer Support Team, we offer a wide range of support, including:
Information and advice on areas such as benefits, grants, and short breaks
We also provide specialist advice and support on carers’ rights, such as hospital discharge, Adult Carer Support Plans, and emergency planning.
