Every caring situation is different.
You may be caring for a partner, parent, family member, friend or neighbour. There are a wide range of reasons why they may need help including: illness, age, disability, alcohol or substance abuse, and mental health issues. We will listen to your story and help you access the advice, information and support to best meet your needs.
“I feel more able to cope because Quarriers staff allowed me to talk through my problems.”
Help if you are struggling to cope
Our help is tailored to suit your needs and can be provided for as long as you need it.
Putting you in touch with other carers
We offer opportunities to meet and make friends with others in relaxed surroundings.
“I really enjoyed meeting other carers. It just takes your mind off your caring role for a while.”
Provide information and advice
We can help you access information and advice that’s right for your role, as well as connect you with specialist agencies to ensure you get the answers you need.
“It never occurred to me that I was a Carer and might be entitled to benefits.”
Adult Carer Support Plan
As a carer, you are entitled to an Adult Carer Support Plan that identifies what you need to help you continue to provide care safely and in a way that suits you and your family. Our Family Wellbeing Workers can help you complete one, ensuring you make the most of available services, and finding ways you can make small changes to see a big difference.
You can also complete an Adult Carer Support Plan online, via the Moray Council website by clicking HERE
“Creating my support plan helped me put things into perspective. The future looks more positive and I feel more able to continue caring.”
Skills and Confidence
We can provide free learning opportunities throughout Moray, based on what you tell us you need. These can give you skills and confidence in your caring role and greater awareness of your own health and wellbeing.
“Moving and handling gave me to confidence to move someone without hurting them.”
For when you need more than emotional support.
“I’m empowered to accept the things I can’t change, consider situations where I can influence and stop worrying if I can’t.”
The opportunity to get away from it all and recharge your batteries.
“I really appreciated being able to put my needs first for a change.”
