S5W-01308: Miles Briggs (Lothian)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 7 July 2016

To ask the Scottish Government how many carers have received a respite break as provided for under the Carers (Scotland) Act 2016.

Answered by: Aileen Campbell 26 July 2016

The Carers (Scotland) Act 2016 will be commenced on 1 April 2018, and therefore data about carers receiving short breaks as provided for under the Act is not available.

The Scottish Government has made a commitment to monitoring and evaluation of the Act’s provisions. Data will be shared publicly and to the Parliament when available.
