They vary greatly, due to the wide variety of needs that we address but include group homes and supported living services for people with physical and learning disabilities, support services and Scotland's only residential assessment service for people with complex forms of epilepsy; a residential and day school and community based projects for children with social, emotional and behavioural difficulties; hostels and support services for young homeless people; family centres; respite and long term care for children with a range of disabilities and other difficulties and support services for carers.


Current opportunities

Adult unpaid Carers who live in Aberdeenshire may find themselves busy with looking after their cared for and may feel lonely or isolated at times so a Befriender, someone who can pop in for a cup of tea and a chat would be the perfect tonic that some people may need to lift their spirits and break up their day. A carer is someone who spends a significant amount of time looking after or supporting a member of their family who has a disability, illness, drug/alcohol or mental health problem. Caring may include practical things like cooking and cleaning, helping out with younger brothers and sisters, listening and reassuring the person when they worry, paying bills, giving medication, helping with dressing and washing and keeping them company.

Do you have some time to spare to get involved and help out with some of Quarriers Carer Events that are planned throughout the year. This may involve setting up teas and coffees and putting out cakes etc at events like Carers Week 2nd week in June or Carers Rights Day which is the end of November. There will be other events here and there to help promote and raise awareness for the Service.

Do you have some spare time? Due to Adult Carers time being taken up with their Caring role they find that keeping up with tidying up the garden can sometimes be difficult to get around to.
