Carers (Scotland) Act 2016 - How will this affect your way of working?

28 Sep 2016

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.
