Perth and Kinross Carers Voice

We are a Carer’s Participation group which aims to involve carers in decisions on matters that affect their lives and the lives of those they care for. We are very keen to increase our membership base and we need your input to ensure that we maintain a current, accurate and well-informed understanding of all of the issues affecting unpaid Carers in the Perth and Kinross area.

The group’s aim is to discuss possible solutions to issues raised by carers and feedback to local service providers.  We are already well placed to raise awareness of the problems facing carers with representatives of our group attending the Integrated Joint Board, Carers Strategy and Strategic Planning Group meetings.

We understand being a full-time carer is a very demanding and time-consuming role and that many carers may feel that they don’t have time to attend our meetings but that does not mean that they should not have an opportunity to make their views known. With that in mind, we have established our own Email address in order to create an easy method for all carers to feedback their views on existing carer services and any suggestions for improvements going forward.

The larger our membership base the more we can claim to be truly representative of the local caring community and have greater credibility and influence when speaking to all official bodies.
