The funding was announced by Public Health Minister Michael Matheson on a visit to the Pollok Carers Centre.
The money will help The Princess Royal Trust and Glasgow South East and Glasgow South West Carers Centres to offer information and advice, help with benefits, one-to-one counselling and emotional support to carers, as well as giving them the chance to meet other people in the same position and providing services for young carers.
Nicola commented: “I know what a fantastic job these three Centres do. This funding will help support a variety of excellent initiatives to identify and support carers so that they can receive support. The contribution made by carers and young carers to Scotland is enormous. That’s why I am pleased to see the Scottish Government support very worthwhile initiatives of this kind.”
