Carers Scotland runs a Carers Advocacy Service to help carers over the age of 16 living in South West Glasgow. The Carers Advocacy Service can help carers:
- express their own needs
- make informed decisions
- take greater control of the decisions that affect them and those they are caring for
The Service is free, confidential and independent from social work and health services and is affiliated to the Scottish Independent Advocacy Alliance.
The Project also plans to develop self advocacy resources for the future.

Self Directed Support Carers Project
Carers Scotland and the Scottish Personal Assistants Employers Network (SPAEN) are holding two events in North Lanarkshire to help carers who want to find out more about self directed support (SDS). The SDS Carers Project is designed to help carers decide about SDS with confidence and will offer longer-term support to help carers to manage their own budgets, if this is what they want to to. The event in March is for all carers and the one in May is specifically for Parent carers.
The two events will be held in Motherwell on:
- Wednesday 20th March: 10.30am - 12.30pm (all carers) Lunch will be provided
- Friday 10th May 9.30am: 11.30am (parent carers) Refreshments provided
