Company info

Helensburgh & Lomond Carers is a Charity which supports unpaid carers. All our services are free to unpaid carers.

Before 2000, no statutory or voluntary services based in Argyll & Bute offered support to unpaid carers as their primary function. However, that year the Scottish Government made funding available to local authorities to be used firstly to determine what services carers living in their respective areas required and then contribute to the costs of providing those services. Within Helensburgh and Lomond a Steering Group was formed and questionnaires were distributed to carers inviting their comments and suggestions. This confirmed the need for an advice and information support service and the demand for a Carers’ Centre to be established in Helensburgh.
