COSLA Leaders and Scottish Government have agreed an approach to supporting the social care sector to ensure that reasonable additional costs will be met.
Commenting following a meeting of COSLA’s Leadership Sounding Board COSLA’s Health and Social Care Spokesperson Councillor Stuart Currie said:
“Council Leaders are clear that ensuring the social care sector remains sustainable is a key priority for Local Government. This agreement and the initial payment of £50 million announced by the Scottish Government last week will allow Health and Social Care Partnerships to continue to support the social care sector to respond to COVID 19.”
