Our ambition is for sustained public investment in the development of a modern, nationwide infrastructure of social care support.
The social care support we envision will be an instrument of transformative social change.
It will protect, promote and ensure human rights and tackle inequalities for disabled people and carers. We believe that this infrastructure will also play a critical role in building and sustaining Scotland’s social and economic prosperity.
This infrastructure should facilitate the delivery of a statutory framework of common outcomes, underpinned by clear and consistent nationwide rights and entitlements. In order to reflect and adapt to the varied local contexts across Scotland, we believe the administration and delivery of this social care support should be a local matter, involving local government and other statutory and non-statutory agencies and organisations, disabled people and carers.
