Ministers intend to use regulation-making powers in the Criminal Justice (Scotland) Act 2016 to establish a statutory service.
The proposals include:
- the duty to ensure that people are available to provide support, and to deliver training, will be placed on local authorities;
- a broad statutory duty will be supported by more detailed guidance;
- the Care Inspectorate will come under a duty of quality assessment, while the Mental Welfare Commission will have oversight of the provision of services nationwide.
