Turning Point Scotland's Submission into the Independent Review of Adult Social Care
Turning Point Scotland works with adults who are experiencing a range of support needs in relation to learning disability, autism or acquired brain injury, fluctuating mental health or physical disabilities, problematic alcohol and/or other drug use, involvement in the justice system and homelessness. We work from the belief that people matter, that they are the experts on their support needs and that it is for us to work creatively with them and with partners to ensure that those needs are met.
We welcome the opportunity to contribute to the Committee’s inquiry. We have worked with Coalition of Care and Support Providers (CCPS) and the Drug Death Task Force (DDTF)on the development of their submissions, and we support the points that have been made. Rather than repeat what has already been said, this brief submission is intended to add Turning Point Scotland’s particular perspective and some practice examples for your consideration.
