Are You looking After Someone

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.

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 an Information booklet with more information. 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 25th 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.
