Coalition of Carers in Scotland

From Recognition to Rights…

The Coalition of Carers in Scotland exists to advance the voice of carers by facilitating carer engagement and bringing carers and local carer organisations together with decision makers at a national and local level.

Since its inception in 1998 the Coalition has played a fundamental role in advancing carer recognition and support and more recently in establishing a Carers Rights agenda in Scotland.

Through our membership we connect with carers and carer-led organisations from all local authority areas and from many different caring communities. We are the only national carer organisation supporting the smaller, isolated and rural carer organisations, ensuring carers from the Borders to the Shetlands have the opportunity to have their views heard.
