Continuing Care (Scotland) Amendment Order 2019: consultation analysis

The Scottish Government has published a summary of responses to their consultation on the Continuing Care (Scotland) Amendment Order 2019 made under the Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014. The consultation was open from 14 November to 12 December 2018.

Continuing Care is defined in new section 26A(4) of the 1995 Act, and when implemented on 1 April 2015, eligibility for Continuing Care only applied to a single cohort of care leavers, aged sixteen. The Scottish Government intends to increase the higher age for Continuing Care annually and this is the fourth and final in the planned series of amendments to the Continuing Care (Scotland) Order 2015 to increase the higher age to twenty-one.

The consultation received 26 responses from 4 individuals and 22 organisations. There was universal agreement that extending the upper age limit of eligibility to twenty-one is the expected and welcomed course of action.
