Are you a Carer?
If you look after someone who cannot care for themselves, even if you don't class yourself as a 'Carer', there is help and support available to you.
Please let us know you are a Carer, so we can add you to our register, by completing the BGP Carers Register form If you provide an email address we will be able to share events and information with you and invite you to our Carers' Support meeting.
The new Aberdeenshire Carers' Charter March 2018 is available here
To access help and support you will need to register with "Quarriers" - Aberdeenshire Carers' Support Service. They will then contact you to assess your needs and help you find the Carer focused support/services that would be of benefit to you.
