This is Carers Week and I am very aware of the tireless work done by unpaid carers in East Ren, supporting loved ones and making an incredible difference. Grateful also to all those in East Renfrewshire - including voluntary groups - who support carers. The work done in our community by groups including East Renfrewshire Carers Centre is hugely important.
The Scottish Government Carers’ Allowance Supplement tops up the inadequate DWP regime, and the Scot Gov Carers’ Wellbeing Campaign recognises the difficulties in juggling family and social lives, work and caring duties, as Carers deserve support for themselves.
The Scot Gov Carers' Wellbeing campaign highlights some support available. You can call 0800 011 3200 or visit nhsinform.scot/caring
