Lanarkshire Carers Centre provide a range of help and support services to people over 18 years of age who look after a family member or friend with an illness, disability or addiction. Our mission is to deliver services that make a positive difference to the lives of carers in Lanarkshire, ensuring they are well informed, supported and empowered to continue in their caring role and also have a life outside of caring.

We have carer support workers covering all areas across North and South Lanarkshire, with offices in Hamilton and Airdrie.

Our online communities

Visit Carers Space
It’s a lifeline. I love it, it really helps break the loneliness.

Matter

Connect with other young adult carers and share what's going on for you. Have a laugh or a rant, whatever you like – with our team on hand every day.

Visit Matter
It's being able to share whatever matters to us: it's personal, like Facebook but confined and safer.

Babble

A safe space for young carers to chat, share experiences and have fun, surrounded by people who understand. Get posting, email us for private advice, or join our supervised chats.

For me Babble is like a big extended family.
