Contact: Petition for a Carers COVID-19 Payment
03 June 2020
Unpaid carers in Scotland who get Carer's Allowance will receive a payment due to the extra pressure they're facing as a result of the pandemic.
Contact is calling on the Chancellor to offer a coronavirus payment to ALL UNPAID CARERS wherever they live in the UK. This payment would help with some of the extra costs many are facing due to the pandemic but would importantly also send a message from Government to unpaid carers that they are valued at this difficult time.
