National Care Service Forum 2023: follow-up questions and answers - easy read

On 30 October 2023, we hosted our annual National Care Service (NCS) National Forum in Glasgow. In this easy read we have collected and answered some of the questions people asked on the day.

Could we replace eligibility criteria?

The Scottish Government and the Convention of Scottish Local Authorities (COSLA) are working together on updating eligibility criteria and assessments.

COSLA represents all of Scotland’s councils.

Eligibility criteria are the needs people must have to access different kinds of support.

Ministers and COSLA leaders will think about different ways of working. They will decide which are best.

We want to make sure NCS services are based on human rights and needs.
