Carers across Scotland do an amazing job at caring for family members, friends and neighbours. The number of unpaid carers has increased significantly since the beginning of the pandemic with almost 1.1 million carers throughout Scotland.
We want to make sure our carers in Fife feel supported. The Scottish Government has launched a new Carer’s Wellbeing campaign encouraging carers across Scotland to seek the emotional and practical support that will help them to look after themselves. We also have a number local measures in place to support unpaid carers.
For more information on the national campaign please visit nhsinform.scot/caring or call 0800 011 3200 (lines open 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday). For all the information on what’s available across Fife please visit http://www.fifehealthandsocialcare.org/carers/
