The Carers (Scotland) Act 2016 came into force on 1 April 2018. This plan sets out outcomes and actions in relation to six key priorities for implementation of the Act in 2020/21, 2021/22 and 2022/23.
The six key priorities are:
- Strategy and leadership
- Legislation and guidance
- Workforce and systems support and development
- Raising awareness
- Carer involvement and choice
- Measuring progress and impact
The plan has been developed by the Carers (Scotland) Act Implementation Steering Group to guide its work supporting implementation. It will be kept under review (with progress updates at group meetings) and updated as required.
