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.

How can we help people access support?

Your local council has information for carers in your area. This is usually at a local carer centre.

You can find your local carer centre at Care Information Scotland.

Or you can ask your GP, district nurse, health visitor, or social worker.

Social care support from home includes self-directed support. This will still be important in the NCS.

There is free advocacy support and advice through the Support in the Right Direction programme.

The Scottish Government funds the Care Information Scotland website. It has the latest information on social care support.
