Carers Resource Service in Aberdeen
Do you have a caring role?
Anyone of any age who helps a relative, friend or neighbour who cannot manage without their support has taken on an unpaid caring role in addition to their existing commitments.
Some people have just started looking after someone, others have looked after someone all their life.
Many care for more than one person, and sometimes their own health is affected.
VSA Carer’s Resource Service provides information, advice and support to local carers and carer groups.
The VSA Adult Carers Service Aberdeen is located on Castle Street. We offer advice, information and support on all aspects of caring directly to carers. A Carer Advisor will be readily available on the following days and times:
Tuesday and Thursday 10am – 12noon
Wednesday 2pm – 4pm
Our Carer Advisors can give advice on benefits, welfare rights, support when liaising with statutory services, young carers support and support for families of children with special needs.
If the member of staff is unable to help, then they will refer you to the most appropriate member of staff or an appropriate agency.
