Part 3: Supplementing Assistance Under Other Enactments
Carers Allowance Supplement
The Committee welcomes the Scottish Government's commitment to increase carer's allowance.
103. The Scottish Government is pleased to have the Committee's support for its commitment to increase Carer's Allowance. Carers make an immense contribution to Scottish society and it is clearly unfair that the support they receive in the form of Carer's Allowance, which is currently reserved to the UK Government, is the lowest of all working age benefits.
