The Programme for Government 2018-19: What does this mean for SDSS?
Last week The Programme for Government 2018-19 ‘Delivering for Today, Investing for Tomorrow’ was released.
In it, the Scottish Government made the following commitment:
‘We will also gather views and consider evidence for a potential new national scheme to provide extra financial support to people with the highest social care needs, so that they can choose to live independently in their homes and in their local communities.’
This is potentially a very exciting development, and we know that SDSS members, and your members, will be really keen to be as involved as possible in this. We are already in touch with the team working on Adult Social Care Reform about how SDSS members can engage in this process so we will keep you updated on this. Meantime, please do get in touch with us to share your thoughts and views.
