The Carers Centre provides information and support to those who are caring for a family member, friend or neighbour who needs help because of long term illness, disability or age-related difficulties.
They are looking for befriender volunteers who could spend as little as two hours a fortnight helping provide support to carers in Falkirk and Clackmannanshire, in a variety of ways such as cinema visits, bowling, or meals out.
A carer supports or is affected by a family member living with a disability, illness, substance misuse, is frail or elderly. The Carers Befriending Project provides support to carers who live in Falkirk and Clackmannanshire. The Project trains and supports befrienders who volunteer their time to befriend an adult or young carer.
