Carers Scotland will be hosting their first hybrid Carers Parliament at Dynamic Parliament at Dynamic Earth in Edinburgh. The event will take place on Wednesday 9th November from 10.30am-3pm. This will be a smaller physical event than previous Carers Parliaments to enable greater space and COVID precautions.
The event will be chaired by Annie Gunnar Logan and speakers, as well as a Q&A panel, which will include the Minister for Mental Wellbeing and Social Care, Kevin Stewart, and carers/young carers.
They will also host on the day workshops on key strategies affecting carers, such as; the Carers Strategy, Right to a Break from Caring, Dementia Strategy, and Scottish Carer’s Assistance: next steps. These events will be offered virtually over this week too to ensure that any carers who wish to be involved can take part.
