Carers and caring

We must prepare and publish a short breaks service statement

The Carers (Scotland) Act 2016 places a duty on all local authorities to prepare and publish a Short Breaks Services Statement. A short breaks services statement is a statement of information about what short breaks services are available locally and nationally to give carers a break from their caring role.

Our Short Breaks Service Statement has been informed by what carers have told us during consultation on the Carers Strategy 2023-2026, through other developments, consultation activity and profiling information. The Short Breaks Service Statement will also continue to be reviewed on an ongoing basis with further engagement taking place when required.
