Carer Support Payment Event, Thursday 9 May 13:00 – 15:00

Carer Support Payment Event, Tuesday 14 May 10:30 – 12:30

Carer Support Payment launched in the pilot areas of Dundee City, Perth & Kinross and the Western Isles on 20 November 2023. We are now expanding the launch of the benefit to the areas of Angus, North Lanarkshire and South Lanarkshire on the 24 June.

Social Security Scotland will be hosting a short series of events to make sure you and the people you support have all the relevant information you need about Carer Support Payment before it opens for new applications in your area. This will include how it will be different from Carer’s Allowance and how the service will be delivered in Scotland by Social Security Scotland.

If you would like to find out more information about this event or book a place, please click on the appropriate link at the top of this email or visit the Social Security Scotland website.

Please note that these events are for stakeholders supporting clients in these areas only and national organisations. Further events will be held from Summer 2024 to support stakeholders in other locations as Carer Support Payment is rolled out nationally.

If you have any questions about any of the events or difficulty booking a place, then please contact the National Engagement and Partnership Team at:
