“We are run­ning a con­sul­ta­tion on this frame­work [un­til] De­cem­ber 11.

“This gives a vi­tal op­por­tu­nity to have a say on the changes that may af­fect un­paid car­ers and the sup­port they get as a carer in Perth and Kin­ross be­fore the frame­work is set.

“This con­sul­ta­tion is open to ev­ery­one in Perth and Kin­ross.

“In ad­di­tion to un­paid car­ers we are keen to hear from other peo­ple and pro­fes­sion­als who might have thoughts on the con­sul­ta­tion.”
