The National Carer Organisations in Scotland (including Carers Trust Scotland) have worked with carers and carers’ services to develop a manifesto for unpaid carers in Scotland. During the campaign for the Scottish Parliament elections in May 2016, we are calling on all political parties to commit to investing in carers, through:

  • Adequate resources to 
implement the Carers Bill
  • Increased efforts to improve
 short break provision
  • Better, preventative 
support for carers
  • Improved financial
 support for carers
  • Sufficient, sustainable
 funding for social care
  • Supporting carers in and 
into employment
  • Introducing health
 checks for all carers

Download the full manifesto below. Details about the Carers Trust Scotland hustings event will be posted soon.
