Our response to the Scottish Government's consultation on the Continuing Care (Scotland) Amendment Order 2019, which will ensure the continued eligibility of the current cohort of young people to continuing care as they increase in age.

We fully support the Order, as the final annual increase extending the duty to provide continuing care to all eligible sixteen to twenty one year olds. Challenges to the full and consistent implementation of continuing care are also explored in this response.
