To ask the Scottish Government how many young carers signed up to participate in the social security experience panels.
Answered by: Jeane Freeman 30 May 2017
Over 400 Experience Panels members have experience of Carer’s Allowance. The registration form did not collect information on the ages of members. The first thing that we will do with our panel members is carry out our ‘About You’ research. As part of this, we will collect more detailed demographic information, including age.
