Are Carers Equal?
Scotland’s Carer Strategy recognises Carers as equal partners in the provision of care – but what does this actually mean? Are Carers really equal?
The Coalition of Carers is asking Scottish Carers to fill in an equality survey, to be completed by June 2012. They would like you to tell them if you have faced discrimination or unequal treatment in your everyday life – perhaps at work, when using public services or trying to access support. This information will be used in working with the Scottish Government to plan towards a more equal future for Carers.
If you would like a paper copy of the survey to complete, please contact Carers Link on 0800 975 2131 or e-mail. Alternatively, you can fill in the survey online at www.surveymonkey.com/s/carerequality
