Our research and reports

1. NAoS Carer's Centre Mapping Project (2023) presents the findings of how our member charities work in with Carer's Centres across Scotland and which Carer's centres have information regarding neurological conditions and refer individuals and families towards individual charities.

As a result of our report, we are working to implement some short, medium and long term goals in order to strengthen relationships between charities and carer's centres across Scotland.
