Older Carers Befriending Service

Eastend Carers LogoOCBS LOGO

Older Carers Befriending Service is based in Academy House, Shettleston and is part of the services for carers provided by East End Community Carers. We cover the East End of Glasgow and take referrals from a variety of sources. Caring for someone can be rewarding but also at times, very demanding and stressful. As a result carers often feel lonely and isolated. The  Older Carers Befriending Service provides a vital support service to older carers as well as providing opportunities for volunteering in the local community.

What the Service  Offers:
