The Scottish Government has launched its public consultation to seek views ahead of the creation of a National Care Service.

The consultation sets out some of the options for delivering social care that empowers people to thrive. It recognises that significant cultural and system change will need to be supported by new laws and new ways of working.

At a minimum, the new National Care Service will cover adult social care. However, the consultation also asks whether its scope should be extended to other groups such as children and young people, community justice, alcohol and drug services, and social work.

We encourage everyone to take part in the consultation, which includes the consultation survey and a series of online consultation events in August September and October, before the consultation closes on 18 October..
