Carers Assessment

Carer’s Assessment
You are a carer if you look after a relative, partner or friend who needs support because of age, disability or illness. This includes parents who are caring for a child or adult son or daughter. You have a right to ask for an individual assessment to discuss what help you need to continue in your caring role.
A carer’s assessment will cover:
  • what help is needed by the child or adult you care for;
  • what help you provide at the moment;
  • how being a carer affects your life;
  • your ability and willingness to continue providing care; nad
  • what kind of services and support are available that might help you continue in your caring role.
For more information see our Family toolkit, developed by ENABLE Scotland’s Young Families’ Support Committee to make life a little easier for parents who are looking for information on how to apply for services.
