4. On terminology, the Scottish Government is clear that carers in their caring role are not service users but are providers of services who receive support to help them to sustain their caring role. The Regulations, however, refer to services for carers. This is because the support which may be provided under section 3 of the 2013 Act is defined as including 'any form of services or assistance which will help the adult to provide, or continue to provide care for the person cared for'. The charging rules in the 1968 Act, under which these Regulations are made, relate to services only. By referring to 'services', these Regulations deal with all forms of support for which local authorities would otherwise be able to make a charge.
