Services for Carers
Lanarkshire Carers run a number of activities and events for carers throughout the year. We also run tailored activities and events for specific groups of carers, such as Young Adult Carers, Black, Asian & Minority Ethnic Carers, and those caring for someone with a specific health condition.
Lanarkshire Carers has developed CarerSpace; an online portal for carers to start or continue their conversation with us and others about their caring role and support needs.
The main aspect of CarerSpace is our Carer Conversation Toolkit – an online toolkit developed by carers for carers that helps you to explore various aspects of your life, focusing on what matters to you.
Occasionally carers can encounter legal issues that can be very daunting. Lanarkshire Carers offers carers a free 20-minute Legal Clinic appointment with a solicitor in partnership with Pomphreys Solicitors. These sessions can be used to discuss power of attorney, guardianship and will-writing. Carers can also receive legal advice on what to do after a death, as well as guidance on your assets and the cost of long-term care, even if you would just like to find out more about any of these legal services and why they are important.
