The Scottish Government Logo

The 2015 Carers’ Parliament will be held on 6th October at Murrayfield Stadium, Edinburgh.

Two places are allocated by ballot – which is drawn by carers – for each of the 73 Scottish Parliamentary constituencies. A small number of additional places have been reserved for carers who are contributing to the programme, for example as members of the steering group or speakers for the workshops and to ensure minority groups and young carers are represented.
