Social Care: Independent Review of Inspection, Scrutiny and Regulation in Scotland - call for evidence

Closes 23 Dec 2022

Opened 24 Oct 2022

Overview

The Independent Review of Inspection, Scrutiny and Regulation (IRISR) was announced on 23rd September. The IRISR will make recommendations to ensure that social care support services are the best that they can be for those that use them and work within them. IRISR will ensure a human rights and person-centred approach is central to the inspection and regulation of social care and will consider how this can be applied across linked services.

Read more about the Independent Review of Inspection, Scrutiny and Regulation.

In order to support the Review we are launching a Call for Evidence where you can share your written views on how you think inspection and regulation can ensure social care support services can continually improve now and in the future.

Your views are essential to the success of the IRISR and to ensure we get the widest possible range of views, we will also be hosting a range of in person and virtual engagement events alongside the Call for Evidence. 

If you would like to submit your response in a different format or require any materials in an alternative format please get in touch with us.

If you require financial support to attend the in person engagement events then please contact us to discuss this further - IRISR@gov.scot

Why your views matter

Everyone with an interest or whose lives have been impacted by the inspection, scrutiny and regulation of social care support services.  Whether this be by working in the sector, is an organisation of the sector, a person who receives or has received support services or for those caring or who have cared for others who have received support services.

We need as many voices as possible to help inform the Independent Review’s recommendations on how inspection, scrutiny and regulation of social care support can continually improve the delivery of social care support services and improve working within the social care support sector.
