Support hub for unpaid carers and PA employers

Covid-19 has affected us all in many different ways, and our wellbeing is now more important than ever. That’s why we’ve partnered with national, local and professional bodies who have a shared passion for looking after the emotional and psychological wellbeing of our country’s health, and social services workers, to create Scotland’s National Wellbeing Hub

The Hub has been set up for everyone who has a responsibility to provide support to others, including unpaid carers.

The Hub offers advice and support to help people adapt and cope with the day-to-day challenges being experienced such as isolation, anxiety, fatigue, poor sleep. Within the Hub there are lots of information, resources and activities to promote positive wellbeing and provide practical advice and tips on how to look after yourself. There is a designated page of information for unpaid carers to find help and support. There is also information for people who employ personal assistants, with links to organisations who can provide advice and guidance regarding self-directed support.

A chance to learn more

If you are an unpaid carer you are invited to attend a web session to learn more about the Hub and a programme called Feeling Good, which focusses on building personal resilience to cope with stress, anxiety, low mood. The sessions will be held online on Tuesday 24 November (at 4pm) and Wednesday 25 November (at 7pm). They will be run by Dr Alastair Dobbin and Sheila Ross who developed the programme.
