Carers (Scotland) Act 2016 Regulations

Reulations have already been made commencing different sections of the Act; clarifying the definition of carer with respect to kinship carers; and setting the timescales for publication and review of local eligibility criteria. Links to these and other regulations will be placed on this page as they are published.  

We are currently consulting on regulations under the following sections:

  •  Section 10 (a); to set out the specific circumstances in which an adult carer support plan must be reviewed,
  •  Section 16 (a); To set out the specific circumstances in which a young carer statement must be reviewed,
  • Section 35 (4); To  clarify what type and level of information is to be included in short breaks services statements, and to set out when and how these are to be published and reviewed by the appropriate authorities.
