Scottish Parliament Debates Carers Bill

Last Thursday a debate was held in the Scottish Parliament on the Carers (Scotland) Bill.

According to the Scottish Parliament website, the Bill seeks to “make provision about carers, including the identification of carers’ needs for support through adult carer support plans and young carer statements; the provision of support to carers; the enabling of carer involvement in certain services; the preparation of local carer strategies; the establishment of information and advice services for carers; and for connected purposes”.

A report on the debate can be read in the Herald Newspaper, or the Scottish Parliament’s Official Report
