The Minister for Social Security, Jeanne Freeman, has recorded an update for carers on the plans for social security in Scotland.
In it she sets out the plans and timescales for setting up a social security agency in Scotland and taking over the 11 devolved benefits by 2020.
She also answers questions which were raised by carers about the government's plans.
The Scottish Government has introduced a new benefit called the Carers Allowance Supplement.
We will be holding a Drop in on Thursday 18th October from 9am to 2pm at PKAVS for anyone who would like more info about the 'Getting it Right for Cares Across Perth & Kinross' consultation.
Over the next 4-5 weeks, the Scottish Government wants to talk to older people about their experiences of Attendance Allowance, one of the benefits being devolved to Scotland.
