Additional Information and Easy Read Material

Additional material in Easy Read has been published to aid engagement and discussion on the National Care Service. This material is supplementary to the Easy Read version of the consultation and is focused on explaining key concepts regarding the National Care Service. It has been developed in conjunction with disability stakeholders to address issues that they have raised. This Easy Read material is designed to help facilitate discussion and engagement beyond the formal consultation period that ends on 2 November as the Scottish Government will continue to engage with stakeholders to co-design the National Care Service as policy proposals are developed.

Copies of the additional Easy Read material are available on the Supporting Documents page.
