Social care inspection: suggested event dates – easy read

We are supporting the Independent Review of Inspection, Scrutiny and Regulation (IRISR) of social care support by launching a call for evidence and a range of in person and virtual stakeholder events. This easy read guide provides more information and will help find out what people think about the dates of these events.


We will ask people across Scotland what they think about the inspection of social care services.

Inspection means looking closely at something.

Social care is services that support people with daily living so they can be as independent as possible.

We will be asking people what they think from 24 October to 23 December 2022.

The Independent Review of Inspection, Scrutiny and Regulation (IRISR) was announced on 23 September.

A review is when something is looked at to see if it is working well and what needs to change.

The review will make recommendations to make sure that social care support services are the best they can be for people who get and give services.

A recommendation is what we think should happen.

IRISR will work to make sure human rights and being person-centred is at the centre of the inspection of social care.

The review will decide how inspection can be done across services that work together.

We are having a 'Call for Evidence' where you can share your written views on how inspection and rules can make sure social care support services can get better.

Your views are very important.

They will make sure the review works well.

To make sure we get a wide range of views we will also be having events online and in person.
