LifeCare Edinburgh have the Carer Positive 'Established' award. They support employees who are carers in a friendly and supportive community.

We pledge to support Carers Week by promoting awareness of the week and beyond - and by sharing information and guidance about how people working in social care can support carers. SCIE support our own staff who have caring responsibilities, to balance their work and caring priorities.

Very helpful and friendly. Am co-carer for my brother, who has early-onset Alzheimer's so can't find his way about. If he wanders off and i try to call him, staff gently prompt him back to me.

Home Instead Senior Care pledge to be active in and around our local area, And to promote and educate with information and advice.

We aim to support the needs of all our Young Carers by understanding and breaking down the barriers to learning they may encounter. We are a Rights Respecting School and Article 28 of the UNCRC states that ALL children have a right to an education.

They listened when I was struggling and adapted my working hours to fit around caring for my parents.
