Young Carers in Angus Are Asked to Contribute to the Charter for the Carers Scotland Act 2016

Tuesday 03rd October 2017

Carers (Scotland ) Act 2016 - Draft Carers’ Charter Consultation

Section 36 of the Act requires Scottish Ministers to prepare and publish a Carers’ Charter (“the Charter”), setting out the rights of carers in or under the Carers (Scotland) Act 2016. The Charter cannot and does not create any new rights or alter any existing rights.

The Charter is intended to provide a summary of these rights in a readily accessible and understandable format for both young and adult carers alike. There is also a requirement to consult with carers and carer representatives, and to lay the Charter before the Scottish Parliament.

This consultation is to determine if this draft Charter is fit for purpose and whether or not a revised Charter will be published in due course.

Angus Carers Centre is collating your views on the proposed Carers’ Charter. If you would like your views to be included in our response to the Scottish Government, please complete and return the Response Form - available in PDF or Microsoft Word* format - by 5pm on Friday 20th October 2017. 

The Charter and Response Form in Print Format
