Social care support reform: summary of discussion paper responses

Analysis of responses to the joint discussion paper from Scottish Government and COSLA on building a national programme to support adult social care reform.

Annex C – Who responded to the questionnaire?

In total, 54 responses were submitted by stakeholders. The 54 responses represent a much larger number of voices as many were joint responses by groups of people or organisations.

Views and insights were provided from a range of perspectives and experiences. This included:

  • individuals and groups of people who use social care support and carers, and organisations representing their interests (for example, membership organisations; subject- or condition-specific campaign, information and support organisations; and equality organisations)
  • organisations that provide independent information, advice and support on social care, housing, or other related support, such as community development
  • Health and Social Care Partnerships
  • the social work and social care professions (individuals and their representative membership organisations)
  • third sector, not-for-profit, and independent sector social care and support providers – including providers of palliative care – and their representative/intermediary bodies
  • housing associations
  • the regulator for the social services workforce in Scotland – the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC)
  • the Independent Living Fund Scotland (ILFS) – the public body that administers additional financial support for disabled people in Scotland who are current recipients of the Independent Living Fund
  • national and third sector organisations that provide support and leadership for change and improvement in health and social care, or other specific expertise, such as procurement support
  • local authorities
  • the Scottish Ambulance Service
