Welcome to North Lanarkshire Carers Together
Carers have the right to be informed, heard and their views considered. We aim to make a positive difference to the lives of carers in North Lanarkshire through the provision of information alongside our carer representation and campaigning work. Our organisation is a registered charity working in partnership with Health and Social Care North Lanarkshire and a wide range of third sector and national organisations to influence policy development and service provision, which affect both carers and the people they care for.

Who is a Carer?
Under the Carers (Scotland) Act 2016, which is the new law to support carers in Scotland, you are considered to be a carer if you are looking after a family member or friend who cannot manage alone due to a long term condition or disability. Carers can be any age, from children to older people and from every community and culture. They may be parents, spouses, grandparents, siblings, same sex partners, friends or neighbours.
