Unpaid Carers - Rotary in Scotland

Rotary in Scotland - working to help a hidden need in all our communities.

In the last 18-months, Rotary in Scotland, in collaboration with the 7 National Carers Organisations in Scotland has brought together a series of briefings and case studies to highlight the issues affecting unpaid carers of all ages. We have helped raise awareness of unpaid carers, highlight their needs to others and signpost those undiscovered carers. We also wished to highlight the work that Rotary clubs in Scotland are already doing to help carers


Here are the links to each briefing to date on You-Tube. Please use them at Clubs meeting and help out by sharing social media posts from local and national care organisation.


Do you have someone in your Club or family that has a Caring Role?

Did you know it can take up to two years for people to realise that they are unpaid Carers?

Your local Carers Centre may be able to help. Please share the link to those that may need it, or indeed could you and your club help your local carers centre?
