Cross Party Group on Unpaid Carers

Cross Party Group on Unpaid Carers

Carers Trust Scotland is the Secretariat for the Scottish Parliament Cross Party Group on Unpaid Carers. We are responsible for the groups’ administration, membership, meetings and provide support to the Members of the Scottish Parliament Convenors.

Purpose of the group

To ensure equality of opportunity for carers in Scotland by liaising with carers' organisations, lobbying the Scottish Government and promoting legislation on carers' behalf; to promote awareness amongst Members of the Scottish Parliament (MSP) of the needs of unpaid carers and former carers; to liaise with Members of both Houses at Westminster and the Welsh Assembly in order to share best practice; and to link with appropriate bodies, including carers organisations, on an international basis.
