Listen to advice from Carers Scotland on how carers can prepare and minimise risk to themselves and the people for whom they care for.

During this very difficult period the ALLIANCE is going to produce a number of podcasts for people living with long term conditions, disabled people, and unpaid carers. These will cover advice, support, and comment on COVID-19.

In this episode of ALLIANCE Live we hear from the National Carers Organisations, represented by Fiona Collie of Carers Scotland (this link will take you away from our website). Fiona talks about COVID-19 and what unpaid carers need to know and the support they need to continue caring during the crisis.

The development of COVID-19 means that this is a very difficult and worrying time for people living with long term conditions, disabled people, and unpaid carers. Scotland is in ‘lockdown’, and the support that many people use on a regular basis is under pressure.
