A consultation on draft secondary legislation, namely the draft Continuing Care (Scotland) Amendment Order 2016

Executive Summary

This draft Ministerial Order contains a procedural amendment to further increase the higher age limit for eligible persons from seventeen to eighteen years of age from April 2016. This is to ensure the current cohort of sixteen year olds continue to be eligible as they increase in age until the duty to provide continuing care extends from 16 to 21 years of age. This relates to powers set out in section 66 in Part 11 of the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014 (“the 2014 Act”). The text of Part 11 can be viewed at: http://www.legislation.gov.uk/asp/2014/8/part/11
