Useful Resources

Several pieces of research have been commissioned to inform the development of the Carers Act and its successful implementation. These documents review the literature regarding unpaid carers and young carers in Scotland and draw conclusions for successful implementation of the Act.

These resources, and other documents can be found in the Useful Documents section to the right.
