From Recognition to Rights – are we there yet?


This event will look at how far we have come in relation to carers rights and what more needs to be done to reduce the impact of caring on people’s lives.

The meeting will be introduced by Joe Fitzpatrick, the Minister for Public Health with responsibility for carers.

We will have contributions from Emma Ritch of Engender on the impact of caring on women and from Dr Donald Macaskill on taking a human rights approach to supporting carers and the provision of social care

We will also be revealing the results from on survey on progress in implementing the Carers Act and how eligibility criteria has been developed across Scotland
