The Carers (Scotland) Act 2016 was passed by the Scottish Parliament on 9 March 2016 and will commence on 1 April 2018. Carers, key stakeholders and national organisations are now contributing their knowledge and experience to help shape the Act’s implementation, as they did the Act’s content, and we want to hear the views of front line practitioners who are working to support carers and the people they care for in shaping implementation of the Act.
At this interactive session you will hear more about the Carers(Scotland) Act 2016 and how it might operate. It will provide you with the opportunity to ask questions and clarify your understanding about provisions in the Carers Act 2016, hear more about implementation and approach to commencement, regulations and guidance; and participate in the development of Act regulations and guidance and other work streams, through facilitated discussion groups on specific topics.
This is one of a series of social services practitioner engagement events led by Scottish Government.
