National Carer Organisations in Scotland

Carers Trust Scotland is one of the six National Carer Organisations (NCOs) in Scotland. Together we have a shared vision that all Scotland’s unpaid carers will feel valued, included and supported as equal partners in the provision of care. The NCOs aim to achieve this through the representation of unpaid carers and giving them a voice at a national level.

We believe we can deliver more for unpaid carers by working together to share our knowledge and experience, and by focusing our collective efforts on achieving improvements in areas of policy and practice that are of greatest concern to unpaid carers.

In responding to proposed policies, laws, strategies and regulations, the NCOs seek to represent the views and experiences of unpaid carers to further carers’ rights in Scotland.
