Carers (Waiving of Charges for Support) (Scotland) Regulations 2014
The Carers (Waiving of Charges for Support) (Scotland) Regulations 2014 became effective from 1 April 2014 and support the implementation of the Social Care (Self Directed Support) (Scotland) Act 2013.
Charges will be waived for all types of services or support if that service or support is to meet an individual carer's needs or personal outcomes as set out in their Adult Carer Support Plan. This may include replacement care where this enables the carer to have a break from caring.
