Aberdeenshire Health and Social Care Partnership (AHSCP) has developed a carers' charter in partnership with carers.
The charter outlines how AHSCP and carers support organisations will work with carers to:
- recognise carers as equal partners
- recognise the right of carers to choose whether to care
- support and maintain carers health and wellbeing
- provide information and advice
- access breaks for carers
- have a voice
- a life outside caring
The carers charter is available to download: Carers Charter (pdf 213kb).
This charter has also been adopted by the organisations providing carers support to adults in Aberdeenshire - Quarriers; Promoting a More Inclusive Society (PAMIS) and Advocacy North East. You can pick up a copy from any of these organisations.
