Who We Are
Stirling Carers Centre was established in 1991 using the name Carers Forum Stirling Area, registering as a Charity (SC020213) and becoming a Company Limited by Guarantee in 1996 (SC165487). Whilst we are officially registered as Carers Forum Stirling Area we trade as, and are well known as, Stirling Carers Centre. The Centre is regarded as the primary support organisation for unpaid carers in the Stirling Council area.
A society where carers are properly valued and supported by Government and the Community, and thereby enabled to fulfil their caring role as effectively and happily as possible.
To widen opportunities and choices for carers in the Stirling Council area, to raise awareness of carers’ issues in all sectors of the community and to champion the rights and well-being of carers.
Stirling Carers Centre endeavours to provide the highest standards of service and to protect the rights of the people we work with. To ensure that we achieve this, the Centre has in place a range of policies and procedures. Stirling Carers Centre is committed to developing a culture which promotes equality and diversity. We promote equality and diversity throughout service delivery and the workplace and to maintaining an environment which is free from discrimination, prejudice, intimidation and all forms of harassment and bullying. If you would like more information on any of our policies, please contact the Centre and speak to the Centre Manager.
To further our vision and mission, Stirling Carers Centre works in partnership with other voluntary and statutory sector organisations, especially with other carers centres across Scotland. This network provides a forum to share best practice, consult on policy briefings and to link into specialist resources such as toolkits, policies and procedures, development funds, training and conferences.
