All unpaid carers looking after someone resident in Glasgow are eligible for carer support with a universal offer of information and advice for all as a minimum.
The Glasgow City Carers Partnership consists of carer centres, health and social care services and condition specific organisations working together to support unpaid carers.
Glasgow City Carers Partnership operates within the requirements of the Carers (Scotland) Act 2016 and all carers are routinely offered a Carer Support Plan or Young Carer Statement. Information and supports are provided with partners in a personalised response which is proportionate to identified outcomes, needs and risk.
Glasgow City Carers Partnership aims to identify and support unpaid carers as early as possible in their caring journey. This approach aims to support carers to have the skills, knowledge and support to enable the person they care for to live well with their condition in the community. Supporting carers to maintain their mental and physical wellbeing also underpins this anticipatory and preventative approach.
