Scottish Green Party

Date lodged: 22 March 2019

To ask the Scottish Government whether it will provide support for needs related to mobility as part of disability assistance for older people.

Answered by: Shirley-Anne Somerville 29 March 2019

The Scottish Government is using feedback from the Experience Panels, the Disability Assistance consultation and the 2016 Social Security Consultation to consider in what ways it could meet the mobility needs of clients who will be eligible for Disability Assistance for Older People. This is set out in paragraph 51 of the partial Equality Impact Assessment in the Disability Assistance consultation document.
