‘Caring on the Margins’ The Carers (Scotland) Bill: addressing the challenges of supporting carers in rural, remote and island communities

23 April 2015

This response looks specifically at the challenges of supporting carers living in rural, remote and island communities and seeks to offer solutions on how the Carers (Scotland) Bill can address these issues, ensuring these carers have equal access to provision and are not disadvantaged by geography.

This paper has been developed by the Coalition of Carers in Scotland's Rural Working Group. 

It also includes statistical information from the Carers UK report "State of Caring 2014", which brings information from a survey of 5000 carers across the UK. 

The statistics in this briefing paper are based on the responses from carers living in rural communities in Scotland.
