A new facility is set to open for carers in Aberdeenshire.

Organised by Borders Voluntary Care Voice and Borders Carers Centre, the free event is open to unpaid family carers, service users and providers.

It is an opportunity for carers to give their views on a range of issues including short breaks, self-directed support and support plans, linked with the new Carers Scotland Act 2016.

‘Getting it right for carers in the Scottish Borders’ at Tweed Horizons in Newtown St Boswells, will include speakers and workshops.

Jenny Miller of Borders Voluntary Care Voice, said: “We are keen to get as many carers as possible along to hear their views on what is important to them.”
