Shared Care Scotland - National Carer Survey

Shared Care Scotland - National Carer Survey

With a new 'right to a break' in development, it has never been more important to put carers voices at the heart of decision-making. That’s why Shared Care Scotland, the national carer organisation with short breaks and respite at its core, is undertaking a comprehensive survey on unpaid carers’ experiences of short breaks and respite services in Scotland.

Chief Executive Don Williamson said: “At Shared Care Scotland all of our work is informed by  the voices of carers and those involved in developing and delivering meaningful short breaks. The development of the Right to a Break from caring is a critically important step forward for unpaid carers. It has the chance to fundamentally change carers experiences for the better, but this right will only be met if there is short breaks and respite infrastructure in place to deliver it. Understanding the needs and  the experiences of carers is an essential part of this process and we would encourage as many carers as possible to take part in our survey.”
