Applications for Carers Parliament now live!


One of the Scottish Government’s key manifesto commitments was to establish a Carers Parliament. This is a forum providing carers, young carers, and carer representatives from across Scotland an opportunity to discuss and debate matters important to them.

The Scottish Government has commissioned Carers Scotland, on behalf of National Carer Organisations, to organise and manage the Carers Parliament. A Steering Group involving key stakeholders has also been established to oversee the development, management, and evaluation of each Carers Parliament.

The fifth Carers Parliament will be held on 2 November 2016. The event will be held at Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh.

Scottish Ministers, MSPs, and other decision makers will be able to hear directly from carers, to hear of their knowledge and experiences, and participate in debates and discussions.

There will be two delegates from each of the 73 Scottish Parliamentary constituencies.

If you complete this form you will be entered into the ballot for places.

The ballot, conducted by carers on the Steering Group, will be held in late July with successful delegates informed in early August.

The most recent Carers Parliament took place on October 6, 2015 at Murrayfield Stadium, Edinburgh.  The 5th event takes place on November 2, 2016 at Edinburgh Conference Centre, Heriot Watt University.
