FABIANI DELIGHTED TO JOIN CARERS SCOTLAND IN PARLIAMENT AS THEY CELEBRATE THEIR 50TH ANNIVERSARY

Carers ScotlandEast Kilbride MSP Linda Fabiani this week joined Carers Scotland in the Scottish Parliament as they celebrated their 50th anniversary.

The Exhibition in the Scottish Parliament highlighted the different ways Carers Scotland provides help for carers. That support includes giving advice and the right information to carers, providing advocacy, and through policy and campaigning to ensure carers’ voices are heard. Carers Scotland also provides tailored training to ensure carers have the right support through skills, knowledge and resilience.

Commenting after the exhibition, Linda said:

“Carers Scotland provide an excellent opportunity for carers to get some really important information about the services they offer and how they benefit the people of East Kilbride, and throughout Scotland.

“It is staggering that there around 750,000 unpaid carers in Scotland who help look after the ill, frail or disabled. I know of many groups and individuals in East Kilbride who do sterling work and provide support to those that need it most.

“Carers Scotland have grown over the past fifty years and dispense invaluable advice, both online and over the phone, detailing what services they provide. Carers should know they are not alone and that Carers Scotland can help in a manner of different ways.

“I urge anyone who wants to find out more information to get in touch with them and to see what assistance they can provide.”
