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 sessions take place every month and will run from 2pm to 4.30 pm. The programme reflects some of the aims of the online (Turas) EPiC Training programme and National Occupational Standards as outlined in the Competency Framework for Health and Social Care Staff.

You can find out when the next sessions will be by visiting our What’s On page! You can also find out more about the session, including how to sign up, HERE!
