Day Three of Carers Week 2021

Welcome to Day Three of Carers Week 2021. The theme this year is 'Making Caring Visible and Valued.' During the week, Shetland Carers hope to raise the profile of unpaid carers and try to identify hidden carers who are not currently receiving support.

Today's theme is 'Local organisations.'

For your information today:

*SIC Citizens Advice Bureau can carry out a welfare check to make sure you are maximising your income and receiving any benefits you may be entitled to. You can contact them on 01595 694696, email [email protected] or we can make a referral on your behalf.

*There are many local organisations who can provide support to you in your caring role, and who can provide services for your cared for person.

Shetland Carers website has a directory with information about local organisations. These include Shetland Care Attendant Scheme, Ability Shetland, Alzheimer's Shetland, Mind Your Head, Shetland Community Connections and many others.

*Carers Factsheet - with the help of carers, we have produced a Factsheet designed to let you know some of the help that is available to carers at present. It is all one one page, not an exhaustive list, but it may point you in the right direction to get the things you need.
