Fife Carers and Young Carers make a vital contribution to our communities and do an outstanding job in supporting a family member or friend.

Over the coming week there will be many opportunities for you to get involved in raising awareness of the important role they play. Please check out what’s on in your area.

If you are a carer and would like information on what supports available for you, why not pop into the Carers Gathering on Wednesday 12 June at the Strathearn Hotel, Kirkcaldy between 1pm and 3pm. There will be representatives from care organisations on hand to provide advice.

Our Young Carers also have a great deal going on this week – visit Fife’s Young Carers for more information. Hear more from our young carers and how to Join our chain.
