Upon the launch of the benefit payment, Shirley-Anne Somerville, the then-Cabinet Secretary for Social Security, shared why Carer’s Allowance Supplement pays tribute to the “important contribution” unpaid carers make to society.

Ms Somerville explained: “Making these payments will represent a historic moment, launching a new public service that will deliver a social security system that treats people with dignity, fairness and respect.

“We recognise the important contribution carers make, and we believe the current total paid out to them is not enough.

“This supplementary payment allows us to get more money in the pockets of carers in Scotland as quickly as possible.
