Information for Carers – Launch of Forth Valley Carers Card Pilot

The Forth Valley Carers Card was launched yesterday and is a carer identification card that has been developed by carers from across Forth Valley, with the support of Falkirk & Clackmannanshire Carers Centre, Stirling Carers Centre, NHS Forth Valley, Clackmannanshire Council, Falkirk Council and Stirling Council.

The Forth Valley Carers Card has been developed to help to ensure that Health and Social Care professionals:
• Recognise carers
• Listen to the views of carers
• Provide carers with information to help them in their caring role
• Involve carers as equal partners in care

The Forth Valley Carers Card will be piloted across Forth Valley during the period December 2015 – November 2016.
