Carers Centres

GAMH are delighted to have been commissioned by the Glasgow Carers Partnership to deliver support to carers through our two new CARERS CENTRES in the West and South West of the city.

Glasgow City Carers Partnership was launched on 2nd December 2011 and established a universal offer of advice and information to all carers within Glasgow City.

The Carer Partnership functions on 2 levels:

Partnership with unpaid carers who are acknowledged and supported as ‘Key Partners’ in the delivery of Health and Social Care.

Partnership between Social Work Services, NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde and carer specific organisations such as our Carers Centres to deliver better outcomes for carers via the Carers Pathway

PURPOSE

The Carers Centres provide inclusive and holistic support to carers to maintain their quality of life and enhance their capacity to maintain their health and wellbeing through the provision of a range of person centred, coordinated, and outcome focussed services.
Our carer support services promote choice, control and independence for carers, tailoring solutions to carers’ specific needs as far as possible and connecting them with their community.
GAMH, as part of the Glasgow Carers Partnership, works closely with the Social Work Carer Support Teams which are located in each of the 3 sectors of the city. These SW teams undertake statutory carer assessments for those carers with greatest need and work in partnership with the Carers Centres including GAMH, at a local level to support carers along the caring pathway from the point of diagnosis and through crisis and emergencies.
