Local Carer Support Groups meet throughout Lanarkshire. These groups bring carers together to share information, talk openly about issues, meet other carers, relax and enjoy the company of others.


There are area based groups as well as an International Women's group, Men's Group, Parent Carer Groups and others. Meeting times, venues and frequency vary so please contact us if you are interested in attending.
