COSLA RESPONSE TO MEDIA ENQUIRY ON CONSULTATION RESPONSES - SCOTTISH GOVERNMENT GUIDANCE ON SUPPORTING CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE WITH HEALTHCARE NEEDS IN SCHOOLS

Councillor Stephen McCabe COSLA’s Children and Young People Spokesperson said: “We are clear that services should be integrated around the needs of each child in line with the GIRFEC approach. That is the aim and intention of all Scottish local authorities.

"Unfortunately cuts to local Government budgets on the scale we have seen in the last two years always hit the most vulnerable. Councils will continue to do their best for our children and families in a time of ever decreasing budgets and COSLA will continue to argue for our fair share of resource when we go into the upcoming Spending Review discussions.”
