Carer Support Payment: fairer Scotland duty assessment - summary

The Fairer Scotland duty impact assessment summarises potential impacts of the Carer’s Assistance (Carer Support Payment) (Scotland) Regulations 2023 on socio-economic inequality. It builds on, and should be read alongside the equality impact assessment.

Scope of this assessment

This impact assessment covers the impact that introducing Carer Support Payment, and the transfer of benefits from Carer’s Allowance to Carer Support Payment will have on recipients or potential recipients affected by socio-economic disadvantage, and also looks at impacts on certain communities of interest and place. We will continue to consider and monitor impacts through ongoing policy development and evaluation and publish further impact assessment documents with future regulations.
