Welcome to North Lanarkshire Carers Together

North Lanarkshire Carers Carers Together pledges to improve the lives of carers within North Lanarkshire by actively linking carers and professionals in meaningful working relationships. Our organisation is a registered charity working in partnership with North Lanarkshire Council, NHS 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?

A carer is someone who provides unpaid support to a family member, friend or neighbour.  They may care for an older person, someone who is disabled, someone with a long-term condition, someone with a mental health difficulty or someone who is affected by alcohol or drug misuse. Carers can be any age, from children to older people and from every community and culture.  Some carers may be disabled or have care needs themselves.  They may be parents, spouses, grandparents, siblings, same sex partners, friends or neighbours.  A young carer is a child or young person who has a significant role in looking after someone in their family.  They may have practical caring responsibilities or be emotionally impacted by a family member’s needs.

The Role of a Carer

Carers have a unique role in the lives of the people they care for.  They enable the people they care for to remain at home safely, independently and with dignity.  The care they provide saves the Scottish taxpayer more than £10 billion a year – the costs of a second NHS.  It is important therefore to recognise and support carers and enable them to continue with their caring role.
