What's Next?

Following feedback from Carers, we are planning a module about finding, navigating, and accessing support from the many different services available across Dundee. We’re keen to hear from the following people to ensure whatever we create meets the needs of Carers:

  • Are you a service provider who would like to showcase how carers can access your support for themselves or the person they care for?
  • Are you a carer who would like to share their experience of accessing a particular service
  • Are you a carer wanting to know more about how to access the different services in Dundee for yourself or the person you care for?
