Fair Start Scotland - individual placement and support review: Scottish Government response

Scottish Government response to the independent review of Individual Placement and Support (IPS) in Scotland.

Recommendation 3

IPS provision within FSS should be expanded further to all participants with complex health and disability-related barriers to work. This would make Scotland a pioneer in demonstrating how to achieve outstanding outcomes within mainstream employment support.

Under the current FSS contractual arrangements, IPS is available to anyone with a complex disability or health barrier. As our Employability service is person-centred, all participants who meet the criteria for IPS will be offered it. Officials will consider this recommendation further to ensure the policy position on eligibility for IPS is considered in the development of future devolved employability services.
