PKAVS Carers Hub supports young Carers (age 5-15), Young Adult Carers (age 16-25) and Adult Carers (26+).
In July 2018 we were awarded funding from the Scottish Government's Support in the Right Direction programme, managed by Inspiring Scotland to launch PKAVS Self-Directed Support Project.
PKAVS Self-Directed Support Project helps unpaid Carers who live in Perth and Kinross access the social care and support which best fits their needs and the person they support.
We will provide information on the local Self-Directed Support process and help Carers establish their own personal outcomes, as well as providing information on what is available in the community.
We are pleased to announce that Billy Morrison will be taking up the new post in November. Billy has worked within the Carers hub for the last 10 years and is passionate about working with Carers to support them to access flexible and personalised self-directed support.
If you have any questions or would like to know more about Self-Directed Support get in touch with Billy on 01738 567076 or email Billy.Morrison@pkavs.org.uk
