Regulations 2013

This document contains draft Regulations to accompany the Social Care (Self-directed Support) (Scotland) Act 2013.

The draft Regulations are published for consultation. The Scottish Government would like to hear from those who receive care and support, carers, social work and health professionals, local authorities, Health Boards and the general public.

Following the consultation the Regulations may be amended. They will then be introduced to the Scottish Parliament.

Alongside the draft Regulations, the Scottish Government invites views on draft Statutory Guidance which will eventually accompany the Regulations and the Self-directed Support Act. Consultees are encouraged to provide their views on both the draft Regulations and the draft Guidance, which are being considered as part of one consultation.
