Carer Strategies and Policies

This section contains local and national carer strategies and policies.

The strategic approach to services and supports for carers in Perth and Kinross is led by local and national strategies and policies.

Carers Strategies

    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.
