Carers Week is an annual campaign to raise awareness of caring, highlight the challenges carers face and recognise the contribution they make to families and communities.
This Carers Week, we’re coming together to support the health and wellbeing of carers in Highland. Around 32,000 people in Highland are carers, looking after a parent, partner, child or friend who has a disability, illness, mental health problem or who needs extra help as they grow older.

The Carers' Charter ...

The Carers (Scotland) Act 2016 (the Act) takes effect from 1 April 2018.
 
The Act extends and enhances the rights of carers in Scotland to help improve their health and wellbeing, 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 Ministers have prepared this Carers’ Charter, setting out the rights of carers in or under 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.

You can read the Carer's Charter here: http://www.gov.scot/Publications/2018/03/4874/downloads#res533199
