Angus Carers Centre have launched a new website aimed at providing information on support services currently offered by Angus Carers Centre throughout Angus.
After many months of hard work, in conjunction with Zoomba Media, the new website is now online and is welcoming for both carers and professionals.
The website has been designed to provide information to carers on the services which are offered, as well as signposting them to other sources of information.
Professionals are also catered for, and it is hoped that the relaunch of the site will aid in the identification of many more carers who remain “hidden” in our society today.
A useful addition to the site is the ability for professional workers to make referrals to the service online, simplifying the process and encouraging more professionals to make referrals.
In addition carers can refer themselves, request support or sign up for many of the activities offered by the centre.
The website also contains a link to Facebook page where carers, and those with an interest in carers’ issues can access up to date news and information regarding the service. Mhairi Blyth, Deputy Manager of Angus Carers Centre, said: “In a rural area such as Angus, it is important that we continually strive to seek inventive ways to engage with carers and to encourage them to sign up for the many activities we provide, and to make connection with other carers who may be in similar situations to themselves.”
