Scottish Government Response to 'Carers Legislation - Consultation on Proposals - January 2014'

On 22 January 2014 the Scottish Government launched 'Carers Legislation - Consultation on Proposals'. The consultation ran for 12 weeks and closed on 16 April 2014.

Next steps and conclusion

The Scottish Government will continue to engage with carers, carer organisations, COSLA, local authorities, health boards and other relevant stakeholders once the Carers Bill is introduced to Parliament and on the development of other policies for carers alongside the Bill. It will be especially important to continue to engage with stakeholders to be involved with the young carer statement since this is a completely new development.
