SIAA joins ‘A Scotland that cares’, a campaign for a new National Outcome to fully value and invest in those experiencing care and all those providing it.
More than 45 organisations already back ‘A Scotland that cares’, a unique campaign created by Oxfam Scotland, Carers Scotland, the Scottish Women’s Budget Group, Scottish Care and One Parent Families Scotland. The breadth and diversity of supporters demonstrates strong support for adding this new National Outcome in the upcoming refresh of Scotland’s existing Outcomes. Critically, the campaign will seek to amplify the voices of those directly impacted by care –either experiencing or providing it –at a time when the cost-of-living crisis is creating major new pressures.
This initiative highlights that to build a fairer Scotland, one that is more resilient to shocks like the Covid-19 pandemic and the cost-of-living crisis, we need a new National Outcome on care to be placed within an improved National Performance Framework (NPF). This will put care at the heart of the Scottish Government’s vision for Scotland and help ensure we fully value and invest in all forms of care and all those who provide and experience it.
