Response to Social Justice and Social Security Committee call for views on the Carer's Allowance Supplement (Scotland) Bill

by Fiona Collie 17 August 2021

National Carer Organisations, which includes Carers Scotland, responded to the Scottish Parliament's Social Justice and Social Security Committee call for views on the Carer's Allowance Supplement (Scotland) Bill

The National Carer Organisations outlined support for the intention to provide an additional amount in the December Carer’s Allowance Supplement payment and of the power to bring forward additional payments in future.  We also outlined key considerations for future financial support for carers alongside the need to consider a COVID recovery plan for unpaid carers to reduce the ongoing inequalities faced by carers, exacerbated by the pandemic.
