Carers of West Lothian is a well-established charity offering a range of services developed to meet the needs of unpaid carers and disabled people in West Lothian through their information, advice and support service.
We support young carers aged between 8yrs-18yrs who live in West Lothian.
Being a young carer means you may take on responsibility for helping to look after someone (usually a family member) who has a long-term illness, disability, mental health problem or substance misuse issue.
The type of support we offer will depend on the young carers age and unique family circumstances but can include one to one support, peer support groups, school support, signposting to relevant agencies, information & advice, counselling and short break funds to name a few.
