Who is an Adult Carer?

An adult carer is someone over the age of 18 who provides or intends to provide unpaid care to a relative, partner or friend. This could be caring for someone who is ill, frail, disabled or has poor mental health or substance misuse problems.

Who is a Young Carer?

A Young Carer is a person under the age of 18 who provides or who intends to provide care for an adult or child needing care, except where the child needs care solely due to their age.

We have a Carers Information booklet with more information (Supplies of hard copy booklets are currently suspended as part of COVID-19 restrictions).  This is also available in other languages. We also have information on the Carers Act available in Chinese and Urdu

We will now share data based on the relevant legal basis under the current Data Protection legislation with effect from 25 May 2018.  Consent for data sharing is no longer required and if you are providing anyone else's details, where appropriate, please make sure that you have told them that you have given their information to Glasgow City Council.
