Response

I attach a copy of some of the information you requested. We do not have a service level agreement or contract for this project, but there is an offer of grant, a copy of which is attached.

While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance the Scottish Government does not have some of the information you have requested. We do not have any management information or reports from Care and Repair Scotland, though under the terms of the grant these will be available at a later date.
