Opportunity to have your say on how care and support services are organised

15/07/2015 at 01:00pm 
Lots of people across Scotland access care and support services, like home care, support workers, 

short breaks, day services and advocacy.

Procurement is the word used to describe the way that Councils arrange and pay 

for services to be put in place and these are then delivered under contract 

by voluntary organisations or private providers.

The Scottish Government, together with appropriate public and private organizations, is currently 

considering amendments to the guidance that councils and other public bodies can use when buying 
these services. These amendments are mostly because there will be some changes to the rules 
about procurement. The guidance provides advice to Councils about what they should think 
about when buying care and support services.

As part of our involvement in this process we would like to gather the views of:

• People who use support and services – particularly if they have been involved 

in helping a Council make a decision about buying care and support services.

To that end the ALLIANCE is holding an event together with the Scottish Government 

on Wednesday 15 July to give people who use support and services the opportunity to have their say.

 The event will consider how people should /could be involved in the process in the future 

and how services are then arranged.

The event will take place in Glasgow at the Europa Building, 450 Argyle Street 

from 1:00 (for 1:30 start) – 4pm

Lunch and refreshments will be served on arrival 

and travel expenses by public transport will be covered.
