We have Young Carer events going on throughout summer and at times, our young carers may need transport to get them to the events. We would be looking for you to pick them up from their home address and take them to the location of the session but also be available to return them home after a session.
Carers Link is the local organisation dedicated to carers and we provide a range of services for people who live or care within the East Dunbartonshire area. Our Vision: Carers want to see the person they care for have the best possible quality of life. Carers Link wants to see the Carers of East Dunbartonshire also have the best possible quality of life, encompassing help and support for your caring role, and the opportunity to pursue your own needs, interests or work. Carers Link wants to see that the Carers of East Dunbartonshire are both informed and involved and that your experience as a Carer is respected and valued.
Experience required: Able to speak to children and keep them comfortable during the journey. Confident with collecting children from the door and speaking to parents.
