National Care Service Forum 2023: follow-up questions and answers - easy read

On 30 October 2023, we hosted our annual National Care Service (NCS) National Forum in Glasgow. In this easy read we have collected and answered some of the questions people asked on the day.

How will the NCS support unpaid carers?

The NCS is about improving people’s lives. This includes unpaid carers.

We will give carers a new right to personalised short breaks support if they need it.

This will help protect carers’ wellbeing and help to support caring relationships.

We are working on this with a group involving people with an interest. This includes:

  • unpaid carers
  • people who provide services
  • carer centres
