What do women need from a Scottish Carer's Assistance?
March 31, 2022, 10.00 – 12.30
The Scottish Government are consulting with people in Scotland about a Scottish Carer’s Assistance. A Carer’s Assistance will replace Carer’s Allowance, but it could also do so much more to value and recognise the work done by unpaid carers in Scotland.
Engender are holding two online events with women who have or who have previously had unpaid care responsibilities. This will be a chance to hear from the Scottish Government about their plans and, more importantly, to raise the issues you care about and share your views on how Carer’s Assistance could be designed to centre women’s equality. These events are for women only (inclusive of trans women).
Participants will receive vouchers worth £30 for their participation, and we can also contribute to care costs, so please get in contact to discuss this. Live transcription will be provided.
To register your place, let us know about access needs, or find out more, please contact Catriona at Catriona.Kirkpatrick@Engender.org.uk
There is another opportunity to feed in your views on the 5th April at 6pm if that is a better time for you, and we will also be providing other ways to contribute to the consultation.
