Our aims

The Dundee Carers Centre aims to make a difference to the lives of carers of all ages and disabled people in Dundee.

We do this by:

  • Providing information and support services for carers, young carers and disabled people
  • Ensuring the rights of carers, young carers and disabled people are promoted and upheld
  • Empowering carers, young carers and disabled people to challenge decisions which affect their lives
  • Working collectively to develop new services in response to identified unmet need

Our values

We believe that everyone deserves to be treated with fairness and dignity and is supported to make a positive difference in their life.

As an organisation that embraces challenge, we need to demonstrate a culture of kindness, compassion and creativity.

Working together, we keep the needs of carers and disabled people at the centre of everything we do… because we care.
