Central Scotland MSP, Mark Griffin.

ONE Labour MSP has said that careers “play an invaluable role in our community” after holding a specially arranged Carers Surgery.

Labour member of Holyrood for Central Scotland, Mark Griffin MSP hosted a special Carers Surgery in Cumbernauld Town Centre, earlier this month, which he has said he was “pleased” to host.

The event, which took place on Friday 14 June, allowed local carers to come along and get some advice from Mark and other charities and organisations, including North Lanarkshire Council’s Social Work Department, the Department of Work and Pensions, Watch Us Grow, Lanarkshire Carers Together, USDAW and the Princess Royal Trust for Carers.

Commenting, the regional Labour MSP said: "Carers, paid or unpaid, play an invaluable role in our community, supporting those in most need.

"I was pleased to host this event to mark National Carers Week, and highlight the excellent job done by local carers day in, day out across the Cumbernauld and Kilsyth area.

He added: "I am grateful for the support of North Lanarkshire Council, the Princess Royal Trust for Carers, USDAW, Watch Us Grow, Lanarkshire Carers Together and the Department and Work and Pensions for coming along and offering their guidance and support to all the carers who sought advice and assistance."
