Support for Unpaid Adult Carers

An unpaid carer as an individual who provides or intends to provide care for another individual.

There is a wide range of services available to support unpaid carers in their caring role and to have a life alongside their caring role.  Completing an adult carer support plan will give you the opportunity to tell us what support you need to continue in your caring role. 

An adult carer support plan helps you to think about the support you might need and what could help you to have a fulfilling life alongside your caring role.  The plan will set out any needs you have and how they will be met.

In Renfrewshire, we encourage unpaid carers to contact Renfrewshire Carers Centre, who will support you to complete a plan and access support including:

  • Information and advice.

  • Emergency planning.

  • Counselling and mental health support. 

  • Activity based classes and support groups.  

  • Training. 

  • Health and wellbeing services. 

If you would like to request an adult carer support plan please contact Renfrewshire Carers Centre by phone 0141 887 3643 or email
