We also had a guest speaker from the Scottish Government Carers Policy Unit at our Annual General Meeting, who introduced a video address from the Minister for Public Health, Sport and Wellbeing, Joe FitzPatrick MSP. You can view this video here:


Norma Morris, Development Manager from Carers Trust Scotland gave a presentation on the importance of carers in society and the Carers (Scotland) Act 2016.


Staff from Lanarkshire Carers Centre also led a workshop on a Personal Outcomes Approach to Adult Carer Support Plans.

Our aim was to look at how the personal outcomes approach could be best used to support carers who engage with Lanarkshire Carers Centre and assist in the completion of their adult carer support plan (ACSP). The AGM allowed us to trial our ‘Carers Cake’ toolkit with a large group of carers and gain their valuable feedback and comments.


Our fantastic 'Crooning Carers Choir' ended our Annual General Meeting with a selection of songs.
