Carers of West Dunbartonshire is an independent, voluntary organisation which is managed by a voluntary Board of Directors. The service works in partnership with West Dunbartonshire Health & Social Care Partnership.
The Carers’ Service operates from 72 and 84 Dumbarton Road, Clydebank.
84 Dumbarton Rd is the base from which the service is managed and 72 Dumbarton Rd is a resource base which is used for groups, training, meetings etc. The service provides a range of support for carers who are 18 and over and we would encourage you to make as much use of it as you can to assist you with your caring role. We are open from 9.30 a.m. to 4.30 p.m. Monday to Friday. The service is available to anyone living in West Dunbartonshire or who cares for someone living in the area.
The Carers’ Centre is the office base of the Service Manager, Carer Support Workers and the Administration Staff. They are there to help you with enquiries, provide a listening ear and offer support, both practical and emotional.
We also operate an outreach service at venues throughout West Dunbartonshire which provides carers with the opportunity to access carer support easily. Complementary therapies, carers’ training and group work are also available to carers within these outreach bases. Our Carer Support staff will also visit you at home, if required.
If you wish to register with the Carers’ Centre, your name will be added to our database of carers which means that you will receive regular mailings about events and activities.
