Family Carers and Volunteers

DSDC provides practical information and support for family carers and volunteers who support someone living with dementia.

DSDC has a number of resources available to support family carers and volunteers.

Our popular 10 Helpful Hints series is available through the John Smith Bookshop; these resources have been designed specifically for informal carers and broken down into bitesize pieces of practical information. 

Thanks to funding, DSDC has been able to create and run free workshops across Scotland and launch the information hub, both designed specifically for those who support someone living with a diganosis of dementia. Workshops are available free of charge thanks to funding grants; a full list of available workshops can be found here. The online information hub provides an online resource full of useful information for informal carers and volunteers. You can access the online information hub here
