Additional programme information

Please find additional information about the Unpaid Carers Improvement programme below.  


The ihub’s People-led Care Team were initially commissioned by the Scottish Government to deliver an improvement programme, to ensure carers’ needs are addressed across health and care services.

The Scottish Government have then asked us to deliver additional improvement support with a specific focus on increasing the identification and engagement of unpaid carers in the context of healthcare delivery.

This work is part of the Scottish Government implementation plan for the Carers (Scotland) Act 2016.
