The Carers Charter

Eligible Criteria

East Lothian Health and Social Care Partnership is committed to improving services and support available to carers in line with the Carers (Scotland) Act 2016. The Act requires that each Local Authority drafts its own Carers Eligibility Criteria and to provide support to those carers whose needs meet that criteria.

The criteria defines the:

· levels and types of need that require support

· the thresholds that must be met in order to be eligible for support

The criteria is designed to be used by carers of all ages including adult and young carer.
