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.

What Happens Next

The Scottish Government will review the responses to the consultation and if required adjust the draft regulations in light of public consultation. The draft regulations will then follow a form of 'super-affirmative' procedure, as explained in the Social Security (Scotland) Act. [1] They will be scrutinised by the independent Scottish Commission on Social Security, revised as needed following the Commission's report and then laid in draft for approval by the Scottish Parliament.
