Have Your Say on the Carers Charter ...
This is your opportunity to shape the future for carers in Scotland.
The Carers Act 2016 will come into force on 1 April 2018. The Charter is intended to ensure first and foremost that carers are aware of their rights as carers. This consultation covers the rights in or under the Act. There will be scope in the future to produce an updated version covering carers rights under other legislation.
The Act extends and enhances the rights of carers in Scotland to help improve their health and well-being, so that they can continue to care, if they so wish, and have a life alongside caring.
As required by section 36 of the Act the Scottish Government has prepared this Carers’ Charter, setting out the rights of carers in the Act.
The Act also requires local authorities to have a local information and advice service for carers. These services must provide information and advice about a number of things relevant to carers, including the carers’ rights set out in the Carers’ charter.
