Carers Act Consultation: Give us your views

Published: Wednesday, 20 September 2017

We want your views on how we plan to meet the needs of unpaid carers when new legislation is in place next year.

With new Carer Legislation coming into force in April 2018, you are invited to come along and have your say on how Edinburgh is planning to put it in place for Carers in the capital.

Support Plans, Eligibility Criteria for Service and Self Directed Support budgets will need to be put in place by the Local Authority and NHS Lothian and we want to know what you think.

The session will be held in:
