S5W-22265: Mark Griffin (Central Scotland)

Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 19 March 2019

To ask the Scottish Government whether an individual will have an absolute right to a home assessment for disability assistance in the event that they request one as a result of Social Security Scotland having determined that a face-to-face assessment is required.

Answered by: Shirley-Anne Somerville 26 March 2019

We have committed to providing home assessments for those who need them. Our Consultation on Disability Assistance seeks views on the details of this and responses to the consultation will inform policy development.
