Weekly Update: The Scottish Government's Support for Unpaid Carers Campaign
The Scottish Government have launched a new campaign to help and support people with caring responsibilities in Scotland. The campaign was launched at the Carers Parliament on Wednesday last week by Still Game star Jane McCarry, who is a carer herself.
Hopefully you will see this campaign being promoted online, in print and via the following television advert:
Part of the challenge of getting people to access this support is that many carers do not realise that what they do for friends and family as caring, so part of the campaign is to create case studies to help carers recognise themselves through the experiences of others.
