Campaign: Carers Cost Of Living FundFebruary 15th 2023, By Anne Wright
National Carer Organisations have today launched a grass-roots campaign asking carers to call on the Scottish Government to include a Carers Cost of Living Fund in the budget.
We are asking carers to write to their MSPs using a template letter which sets out why carers have been so badly affected by the cost of living crisis and why they need financial support. The template can be found at: Unpaid Carers Cost of Living Fund (e-activist.com)
You will have seen that this has already received a lot of press coverage over the last few months, but the Government has still not committed any extra funding for carers.
