Join us for this 2-part online workshop delivered by Age Scotland. Whilst primarily aimed at carers of people living with dementia, there is a wealth of information and advice that is applicable to many carers and all are welcome to join.
Part 1 – An Introduction to the Carers (Scotland) Act 2016
Thursday 7th April 2022, 2:00-3:30pm
This friendly, informal workshop will give participants knowledge and understanding of the rights the Carers Act gives carers. This will include the Adult Carer Support Plan, and the other responsibilities of local authorities set out in this Act. In addition, the workshop will also provide a brief introduction to aspects of self-directed support. There will be the chance for group discussions and questions.
