Dundee Carers Centre

Dundee Carers Centre aims to improve the lives of carers through practical and emotional support, advocacy, training and information about services, short breaks and Self-directed Support. Read more about what we can do for you.

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 drug or alcohol dependency. Anyone can be a carer – we work with carers aged from 8 to 95.

Many carers do not consider themselves to be a carer. They are just looking after their mother, son, partner or best friend, just getting on with it and doing what anyone else would in the same situation. More than one in eight people in Scotland provide care of this kind.

Did you know? Carers vastly outnumber social and health care workers. They provide support that would otherwise cost the UK taxpayer at least £87 billion per year.
