Jo Swinson MP for East Dunbartonshire met a group of local carers on Friday at an informal event organised by Carers Link East Dunbartonshire.
Jo met with CEO Jennifer Roe, volunteer Marjory Cree and the carers, for a chat over tea and coffee.
Carers Link East Dunbartonshire provides information, advice and a network of peer support groups for adult carers in the community to make sure they have the best possible quality of life.
Commenting Jo said:
"I was delighted to meet some of the carers who perform such vital work but so often go unnoticed.
"We as a community should get behind them and provide whatever support we can and I know Carers Link East Dunbartonshire will continue their good work in this area.
"If any carers feel they need support or help, I urge them to get in touch with Carers Link at 0800 975 2131, or via email at email@example.com."
