The Charter for Carers

Monday 26th March 2018

The Scottish Government Publishes a charter for Carers

As part the Carers (Scotland) Act 2016, which takes effect on 1 April 2018, the Scottish Government has published a Carers' Charter, which sets out the rights of carers in or under the Act.

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.
