CSG Home page

Quarriers will be taking over from VSA as the new service provider for Aberdeenshire Carers Support Services from 01/04/2016. Quarriers already provide support to young carers in Aberdeenshire, having taken over from Cair Scotland last year. However, from 1st April, Quarriers will also be the provider for adult carers in Aberdeenshire.

Arrangements are being made to ensure that all carers currently receiving a service from VSA are informed of the forthcoming changes.

It is important that all carers who have a continued wish to receive carers support services are encouraged to register with Quarriers as carer data will not be automatically transferred from VSA to Quarriers.

FROM 1st APRIL, Quarriers can be contacted on/at:

Aberdeenshire Carers Support Service,
Wardes Road,
AB51 3TT

Tel : 01467-538700

Email : Aberdeenshirecarers@quarriers.org.uk

In the coming weeks, until the service changeover, VSA are not going to be accepting new referrals. Until the service changeover, new enquiries will be managed as follows:

  • Referrers will be signposted to Care Management if the carer is in crisis.
  • Referrers will be given verbal advice and signposted to other services, if this is appropriate.
  • If the carer needs a carers assessment, the referrer will be asked to refer to Quarriers when the new service starts. Again, any urgent cases will be referred to Care Management.
