Carer Positive is a Scottish Government funded initiative which has been developed with the support of a strong partnership of private, public and voluntary sector organisations in Scotland.
Carer Positive aims to:
- give expert advice, information and support
- connect carers so no-one has to care alone
- campaign together for lasting change
- innovates to find new ways to reach and support carers
Employers can receive recognition for their support of staff with caring responsibilities through the scheme. For more information please go to their website.
The Carers (Scotland) Act comes into force in April 2018 and this will provide greater recognition for carers. For more information please go to their website.
