Our Carers Hub supports over 1,000 unpaid carers in Perth & Kinross. We help people be individuals first, carers second.
The Carers Hub is split into 3 services;
All our services aim to improve the lives of carers through practical and emotional support, advocacy, training and information about services, rights and benefits.
A carer is someone who provides unpaid care and support to a partner, child, family member or friend who could not manage without their help. This could be due to age, disability, physical or mental illness or addiction. Anyone can be a carer – we work with carers aged from 5 to 95.
The Young Carers Hub looks to provide opportunities for young carers to be children first and carers second. The Project will support young carers with their social, emotional and educational needs through:
Perth Primary 1 - 6 Group - Runs every fortnight from 6-7.30pm.
Perth Primary 7 - S1 Group - Runs every fortnight from 6-7.30pm.
