Carers Link wants to see that the Carers of East Dunbartonshire are both informed and involved and that your experience as a Carer is respected and valued.

Current opportunities

Our Carers Call dedicated telephone service supports over 800 carers in East Dunbartonshire. Volunteers call carers offering a chat which may be about their caring situation or about anything at all. This can reduce the stress and isolation carers can experience. Volunteers are not there to solve problems but offer support and contact. Carers feedback reports they are relieved not to feel so alone and have access to other services offered by Carers Link or other organisations. Calls are made fortnightly, monthly or 3 monthly, so each caller has a dedicated list of carers to call

We have Young Carer events going on throughout summer and at times, our young carers may need transport to get them to the events. We would be looking for you to pick them up from their home address and take them to the location of the session but also be available to return them home after a session.
