VSA Aberdeenshire Carers Service

Do you look after someone who needs help and support due to an illness, disability, mental health problem, or substance misuse? If they could not manage without your support, and you’re not employed to do this, then you are a carer.

VSA's Aberdeenshire carers service, supports adults, children, and young people who care for someone living in Aberdeenshire.

The advantage of our information and support is that we are a local based organisation. We have an in-depth understanding of the people of Aberdeenshire and take a localised approach to all our information and carers services.

We are also network partners with the National Carers Organisations, Carers Trust and Coalition of Carers which keeps us briefed with all matters relating to unpaid carers.

How can VSA's Aberdeenshire carers service support you?

Toolkits and Information

We offer a range of resources and information for anyone who has an unpaid caring role. Our range of toolkits were co-designed with carers to:

  • Help build personal resilience
  • Empower you
  • Give you the skills and knowledge you require to continue in your caring role

The Scottish Ambulance Service (SAS) is working in partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support to improve the quality of care delivered by SAS to people with palliative care needs or reaching the end of their lives, regardless of their diagnosis. This includes managing people in their own homes, where appropriate and involves the development of different pathways working with many teams in Health and Social Care and Third Sector. To incorporate the views of people with palliative care needs and their carers to inform this work, we would politely ask if you could complete the following questionnaire.
