The Carers Act – What You Can Expect…..

Section: Policy into PracticeType: News Item Date Published: 3rd October 2018

Co-designed resources set out new rights for unpaid carers in the Carers Act.

The Coalition of Carers in Scotland has worked with a variety of carers, carer organisations and health and social care staff to co-design a set of leaflets for carers that set out what the new rights are and What to Expect….

The 7 leaflets look at what you should expect from adult carer support plans, assessments, short breaks, emergency planning and discharges from hospital.  They can be downloaded on the Coalition of Carers in Scotland’s website (this link takes you away from our website).

These leaflets are also available for organisations supporting carers to adapt, to include local information and contact details.  If you would like further information and a copy of the templates, please email:
