Registration opens for second Carers Parliament

24 April 2013

Registration is now open for this year's Carers Parliament. 

The second Carers Parliament will be held on Tuesday 1 October 2013.  This year it has not been possible to use the Scottish Parliament for the event but we hope that holding it on a Tuesday will make it easier for more MSPs to attend for at least part of the day.  The event will be held at the Hub, Castlehill, Edinburgh.

The theme for this year is "Your Rights" which was the second most popular choice of the 1000 carers who responded to the consultation in early 2012.

Carers will be entered into the ballot for places.  There will be two delegates form each of the 73 Scottish Parliamentary constituencies.

The ballot, conducted by carers on the Steering Group, will be held in late July 2013 and carers will be informed of the result in early August.

A small number of additional places have been reserved for carers who are contributing to the programme, for example as members of the steering group or speakers and to ensure minority groups and young carers are represented.

Some funding is available to support carers to attend. This will include travel and subsistence and, if required, replacement care costs.  If you are successful, we will ask you more about this.
