Community Care and Health (Scotland) Act 2002

Section 22 – Interpretation

112.This section clarifies the meaning of various expressions used in the Act. Of particular importance is the explanation that “social care” does not include the provision of accommodation (subsection (2)). The note on section 2 of the Act discusses how the provision of accommodation can include both board and lodging and other services. It is intended that such services can be excluded from the definition of accommodation so that they may constitute social care for the purposes of the Act. Regulations under section 2 will achieve this.
