Funding for carers’ groups

Carers organisations are to benefit from more than £700,000 of Scottish Government funding over the next year.

The funding will be used to help them deliver a wide range of programmes and projects to support Scotland’s carers.

The package will be shared between Carers Scotland, Carers Trust Scotland, Coalition of Carers in Scotland, Crossroads Caring Scotland, Minority Ethnic Carers of Older People Project (MECOPP) and Shared Care Scotland.

In addition, there will be £3 million to Shared Care Scotland and the Family Fund for voluntary-run short breaks.
