Carers of West Dunbartonshire

Carers of West Dunbartonshire is an independent, voluntary organisation which is managed by a voluntary Board of Directors. The service works in partnership with West Dunbartonshire Health & Social Care Partnership.

Who is an Unpaid Carer?

An unpaid carer is someone of any age that looks after and supports a family member or friend who, due to their disability, illness, frailty or addiction, would not otherwise be able to live independently at home.
Carers can be affected financially, emotionally, and physically by their caring role, and many carers receive little support.
Under the Carers (Scotland) Act 2016, unpaid carers have certain rights, including the right to an Adult Carer Support Plan (Young Carer Statement for those under the age of 18). An Adult Carer Support Plan identifies the support you need as a carer and what is important to you alongside your caring role. More information on how this is conducted in West Dunbartonshire can be found under ‘Our Services’ or visit:
