Applying SDS to Residential Care

Scottish Government logo with blue and white saltire flag.

In 2017 The Scottish Government funded 2 pilot projects to look at how SDS could be applied to residential care in Scotland. Under the current SDS legislation, it is not possible to fund someone living in residential care through SDS and the legislation is not being applied in this area.

Update- These pilots were completed in 2018, but no conclusions have been drawn from this, and Scottish Government have not yet published the findings. A recent report (Feb 2020) from Scottish Care  gives some more info about this. (See page 6-7).
