Young Carer Grant regulations: consultation

We are consulting on the development of the policy and regulations for the Young Carer Grant, a new benefit which will be delivered by Social Security Scotland.


Why We Are Consulting

The purpose of this consultation is to gather views on the policy and draft regulations and identify any gaps, issues or unintended consequences. We are also asking questions on some specific points about the effects of these regulations. We would like to gather views from a range of organisations and individuals to ensure we have identified the best solution. In addition to asking questions about the draft regulations and policy we are also asking for views on the potential impacts of Young Carer Grant on different groups and also on businesses.

The Scottish Government is now seeking views of any organisation or individual with an interest in these matters to ensure what is being proposed will meet the needs of clients in the Scottish social security system.
