Are you a Carer?

A carer is a person, of any age, who looks after family, partners or friends in need of help, because they are ill, frail or have a disability and need support to live independently.  This care is unpaid.  An adult carer may be in receipt of carers allowance but this is not considered to be a payment.

PKAVS Carer Learning & leisure Opportunities


“Meal Makers” is a volunteering project which has operated successfully in other areas of Scotland and has now been launched here in Perth & Kinross.  It connects people who like to cook and are happy to share an extra portion of their meal, with older neighbours living close by who could really benefit from hot, home-cooked food.  Volunteers sign up on the website and undergo a short safeguarding process before they can search for diners in their local area.  The Meal Makers team works with local organisations to help reach diners and will also take direct referrals, including from friends and relatives.   For all Perth & Kinross-related Meal Makers enquiries, please contact Heather Shields on 01738 452 236 or by e-mail
