Mark Griffin is one of the Labour MSPs for Central Scotland.

CENTRAL Scotland MSP Mark Griffin has said he will mark National Carers Week by marking the “huge contribution” and “personal sacrifice” made by carers.

The former Kilsyth Councillor and Labour MSP has said that careers make a “huge contribution and personal sacrifice” to help family members, with over 500 unpaid careers in Scotland, in this position.

Mr Griffin says that these careers provide invaluable support to family members who could not manage without their help, adding he understands their “very valuable” use of time.

Mark said: “I know the work and the huge contribution and personal sacrifice carers make to help and support family members and friends and that time taken out from caring is very valuable and has to be used wisely.”

To mark National Carers Week, the young MSP has organised a Special Advice Surgery for Carers between 11am – 2pm on Friday 14 June in the Old Scan Bookshop, Spey Walk, at Cumbernauld Town Centre.

The regional MSP says that the surgery “will bring together people who support carers in every way and there will be people at the surgery who are able to offer advice and support on getting the best for the person being cared for and making the most of their income.”

He added: “There will also be people who can help carers juggle their busy lives or just offer a listening ear".
