Pleased to support unpaid carers

Our thanks to Angus Carers Centre for recognising the small part we play in helping to give unpaid carers a break from all the hard work they do through our registration with Respitality Scotland.

Respitality Scotland provides unpaid carers with a break, or activity, some leisure time, or even a little "me-time" to do something enjoyable for themselves. They do so by connecting local organisations that support unpaid carers with hospitality providers, such as hotels, guest houses, self-catering, B&Bs, leisure clubs, restaurants, beauty salons, coffee shops and visitor attractions.

Unpaid carers provide help and support to family or friends who are ill, disabled, or who need extra support.

The Scottish Government estimate there are about 788,000 people caring for a relative, friend or neighbour in Scotland, including around 44,000 people who are under 18, with over 10,500 living in Angus.

ANGUSalive has been delighted to gift vouchers for our water sports and high ropes facilities at Monikie Country Park, as well as donating pantomime tickets, sports centre passes and even a session with our Angus Archives team to research family history.

ANGUSalive senior manager Iain Stevens was proud to accept a recognition certificate from Angus Carers Centre Short Break Development Worker Lesley Simpson at our high ropes at Monikie.
