Carers march

Wednesday's march down the Royal Mile to the Scottish Parliament is part of a co-ordinated protest which will also see demonstrations in London, Cardiff and Belfast.
It's sometimes worth revisiting a thread, to reflect on how things can change, and when I attended the second Scottish Carers Parliament yesterday, and heard the announcement by Scotland's First Minister, Alex Salmond, that the Scottish Government were to consult on bringing in new legislation about carers rights within this parliamentary session, I couldn't help feeling that here in Scotland, at least, the legacy and momentum of our first carers march has been maintained.
It came as a complete surprise to us all when the SNP made the manifesto commitment to set up the Carers Parliament, but they have delivered true to their word and I for one am impressed by their obvious sincerity and yesterdays statement of intent. We now have a new Carers Rights Charter, and the new statement of intent is available online from http://www.scotland.gov.uk/Publications/2013/10/3416
