Carers Trust

Commitment:

There are at least 788,000 unpaid carers in Scotland and caring can have a negative impact on their education, employment, health and welfare. It is vital that the contribution of unpaid carers is recognised, and that they are seen as experts in care provision and equal partners in care. In particular, the need for a regular break from caring must be viewed in the context of equality and human rights.
