This guide to the Carers Act has been produced by MECOPP to assist with understanding of the Carers Act (2016) in Scotland.
Do you look after someone because they have a physical or mental illness, disability or health problems because of substance misuse or their age? You may be a parent, husband or wife, partner, son or daughter, brother or sister or a good friend or neighbour. If the answer is yes – you are also a carer.
Caring for someone else can be physically and emotionally stressful. It can affect your health, your finances and your relationships. But it can also be rewarding if you receive the right help and support when you need it.
