North West Carers Centre is a charity, established in 1998, which supports Carers of all ages and in all caring situations living in North West Edinburgh.

We provide information, advice and suppport, and we run support groups and offer a respite service.

We have a board of directors made up of local people, including Carers, a small staff team based in our office, and support workers who provide companionship to give Carers a break.

NWCC is a Carer-led organisation whose principal aim is to provide services to benefit Carers in the community and in employment.
