To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5W-20025 by Kevin Stewart on 28 November 2018, whether it would consider funding a new study into the potential contribution of adaptations to social housing and what grant level would be required to ensure maximum returns.
Answered by: Kevin Stewart 8 January 2019
Since the integration of health and social care, Integration Joint Boards (IJBs) are responsible for planning and delivery of adaptations and are best placed to review and develop services to meet local needs and improve outcomes for all who require adaptations, regardless of housing tenure.
We expect IJBs to work closely with councils as strategic housing authorities and also to involve local social housing providers when reviewing and developing services for people who need adaptations.
