PKAVS Self Directed Support
Do you support a parent partner, child, sibling or friend as a result of their illness, condition or disability?
If so you are an unpaid carer.
PKAVS Carers Service supports young Carers (age 5-17), Young Adult Carers (age 18-25) and Adult Carers (26+).
We’re now in our fifth year of 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.
Our project wants to ensure that:
- Carers know about and understand Self-Directed Support and options for social care
- Carers feel more informed, listened to and less stressed about the process
- Carers are more prepared and confident to engage with Self-Directed Support and social care
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.
