East Renfrewshire Carers' Centre
East Renfrewshire Carers' Centre

Charity registered in Scotland SC033142

At the Carers’ Centre we provide a full programme of support to carers and young carers. Our ability to do this is supported by donations we receive. All donations received are spent directly on carers and young carers. For young carers donations would contribute to group nights as well as trips and activities to places like the cinema, theme park and bowling. For adult carers we can provide respite and short break opportunities, stress management and relaxation classes, support groups and activities such as coffee mornings when the carer can get away from the house for a short period of time and away from the stresses of being a carer.
