(This note is not part of the Order)
This Order amends schedule 1 to the Community Care and Health (Scotland) Act 2002 (“the Act”). Section 1(1)(c) of the Act provides that a local authority are not to charge for social care provided by them (or the provision of which is secured by them) where that care is of a kind for the time being mentioned in schedule 1 to the Act.
This Order substitutes paragraph 2 of schedule 1 to the Act, which relates to social care as regards eating requirements (article 2). The new provision specifies a number of activities relating to food preparation that are non-chargeable, as well as making more general provision, all of which is subject to certain specified exceptions.
No regulatory impact assessment has been prepared in respect of this Order.
