To ask the Scottish Government what its response is to the reported concerns raised by the Scottish Federation of Housing Associations regarding funding for home adaptions being frozen for the last seven years.
Answered by: Kevin Stewart 19 February 2019
Most funding for adaptations comes from Health and Social Care Partnerships. Funding provided directly to Registered Social Landlords (RSLs) has been protected in 2019-20 to assist them to deliver adaptations for older and disabled tenants. It is for individual RSLs to determine how to make best use of the adaptations funding received from the Scottish Government.
