Working with professionals
The Carers Centre works with a range of professionals across the Falkirk and Clackmannanshire areas raising awareness of carers and their needs.
We recognise that educational staff, medical practitioners, council employees, community workers and others all have an important role to play in identifying carers, and in providing wayfinding assistance to services that can help carers. This role can be all the more important to individuals who find themselves in a caring situation, but who may not even realise that they are a carer.
We are working to develop our partnerships with local statutory, voluntary and private sector organisations to identify carers and raise awareness of the support that is available for carers in the Falkirk and Clackmannanshire areas. Professionals are encouraged to refer carers to the Carers Centre, where we can offer a range of support and advice services to suit their needs.
Information Sessions for professionals
If you are someone working with carers in the Falkirk area and would like to know more about the Carers Centre and the support available for carers, including how carers can access an Adult Carer Support Plan or a Young Carer Statement, please come along to one of our regular information sessions for professionals. These take place on the last Thursday of the month from 2 pm to 4 pm at the Centre in Falkirk. Please let us know if you would like to attend a session by contacting Susan Docherty at the Centre in Falkirk or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
