Please note that the Carers Act Evening Event to be held on Wednesday 10 January 2018 has been rescheduled to Thursday 15 February 2018, 6 pm to 7.30 pm at the Carers Centre, 1a Bank Street, Falkirk FK1 1NB.
With the implementation of the Carers (Scotland) Act 2016 in April 2018, Local Authorities are required to publish local eligibility criteria outlining the levels of support carers can expect. Carers in Falkirk who were unable to attend the December event at the Park Hotel to involve carers in the design of the eligibility criteria are invited to attend this event in February.
The meeting will include an update on the Carers (Scotland) Act 2016 and the opportunity to be involved with partners in health and social care to determine how the needs of local carers will be met in the future.
To book a place, please contact the Centre at firstname.lastname@example.org
