This session is delivered in partnership between SFHA and the Housing Support Enabling Unit.

The Independent Review of Adult Social Care published in February 2021 sets out a vision for reform of adult social care that is focused on:

  • human rights and equality,
  • individual choice, quality,
  • empowerment of people who need support and carers, and
  • valuing the workforce.

The Scottish Government is now looking at the implementation of key recommendations from the review. For a successful transformation to a care system that is integrated, focuses on prevention, independence and choice, housing and housing support services must play a significant role.

This webinar will enable participants to consider

  • Nile Istephan, Chief Executive Eildon Housing Association
  • Iain Macfarlane, Chief Executive, Blue Triangle
