Description

The Coalition of Carers in Scotland - Member Meeting
For carers and staff from carer support organisations

Our meeting will focus on the next steps for the The Carers Act and the Social Security Bill

The Carers (Scotland) Act
April 2018, when the Carers Act will become law, is fast approaching. Our meeting will include:

  • A chance to contribute to the consultation on the regulations which will provide some of the detail on how the Act must be implemented

  • Information from Dundee and South Ayrshire on the areas of the Act they are piloting, including local eligibility criteria, Adult Carer Support Plans and palliative care

  • Sharing how preparations are going in each local area. Where is best practice emerging and where are the challenges?

  • Making it personal - looking at what we mean by personal outcomes. If you are a carer, what are your aspirations and personal solutions for support?

The Social Security (Scotland) Bill

  • The Bill has recently been introduced to Parliament and the government is consulting on it. The Bill outlines how the social security agency will be set up in Scotland and the plans for Carers Allowance and Disability Benefits. We will be asking for your views on the government's plans
