Share your experience of being a carer
The Scottish Government is designing a new benefit called Carer Support Payment. We want to speak to people with experience of caring. This will help us make sure the service meets the needs of the people who will use it.
About the form
The purpose of this form is to ask some questions about you and your experience. We'll then get in contact to offer you the opportunity to take part in a research session.
Taking part in a research session is always optional.
About the research sessions
The research sessions can be held online, over the phone or in person.
If you’re asked to meet to discuss something in person, we can travel to your location or cover the cost of your expenses if you travel to us. Further support can also be provided to help you take part.
Completing the form
You can complete the form online. The form should not take longer than 5 minutes to complete.
You cannot save your answers, so you should complete the whole form in one sitting.
Keeping your answers confidential
Your answers during research will be kept confidential. No one will be able to identify you in any of the reported results. Only people working in the research team will be able to see your name and contact details.
Taking part will not affect any of your applications or benefits. No one involved in making benefit decisions will have access to your answers or know if you’ve taken part.
Any personal information you provide will be held according to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). You can find out more about this in our privacy notice.
