CCPS has been working for several months alongside Scottish Government, COSLA and Scottish Care to look at new funding intended to introduce or enhance ‘Fair Work’ practices in provider organisations (specifically aimed at contracted adult care providers in the third and independent sectors).
The investment represents an allocation to all 32 authorities which is clearly intended for onward transmission to providers. The individual allocations to each authority, along with details of what the money is intended to address, are covered in this letter from the Scottish Goverment to NHS Boards.
We would encourage – indeed urge – all providers to contact the authorities with which they work to find out how this resource is to be allocated. In due course, we will be contacting CCPS members for feedback on the response(s) they have received.
