To ask the Scottish Government what actions it has taken to encourage housing associations to undertake adaptations to make homes accessible for tenants with an assessed need.

Answered by: Kevin Stewart 28 November 2018

Since the integration of health and social care, Integration Joint Boards (IJBs) are now responsible for the planning and delivery of adaptations using budgets created by delegation and for reviewing and developing services to improve outcomes for people who require adaptations.

We have also provided £10 million directly to Registered Social Landlords this year, to assist them in providing adaptations for their tenants.
