The Leadership Collective
We're a network of people who are already involved in providing support for carers locally. We're working with East Renfrewshire Council to develop and implement a strategy to support carers across East Ren.
The Info & Advocacy Collective
We are a team of local carers who are designing new and easier ways for carers to access locally specific information when and where we need it.
The Connection Point Collective
We are a team of local carers who are working along side the Talking Points Team to develop and test a community 'shop front'. This will be a place where Carers, and others, will be able to access support and advice as well as using the space for connecting with other local people.
Take a Break Collective
We are a team of local carers who are working along side local organisations to explore how we might make it easier for carers to take planned breaks from their caring role. We'll be improving people access opportunities for funded short breaks and the support your loved one might need while we aren't around.
We are a team of local carers who are developing ways to make it easier for carers to take stock of their own need, so that they can plan the things that will keep themselves happy and healthy, while looking after a loved one
The Young Carers Collective
We are a group of young carers, schools and youth groups. We are working together to raise awareness of what young carers need, and how everyone can do their bit to help. Young people across East Ren are designing how they would like to see young carers supported in the future, based on their own experiences.
The Community Connections Collective
We are a group of carers who are working along side local organisations to develop different ways for carers to support one another through friendship and advice. We are also designing new ways to enable and ensure that carers, service providers and the wider community can continue to collaborate around improving support for carers in East Ren.
