Planning for an emergency
Many lifelong carers of people who have learning disabilities remain terrified about what would happen if an emergency meant they were no longer able to care for their son or daughter. 
 
ENABLE Scotland’s “Running out of Time” campaign has long called for carers to get more support to planning for such an eventuality. 
 
On 14 July 2011, ENABLE Scotland, along with Alzheimer Scotland, MECOPP, South Lanarkshire Council and Shared Care Scotland, organised an event at which local authority representatives, carers and professionals met to discuss how best to give carers peace of mind should an emergency arise. 
 
Findings of the day included a requirement for a more flexible and accessible approach to support in an emergency, better identification of carers and the need to ensure that emergency planning is included as part of the Carers Assessment.
