That the Parliament considers that disabled people and people with long-term conditions such as dementia and motor neurone disease in Glasgow and throughout Scotland are increasingly paying more for social care services;
- understands that campaign groups, including Scotland Against the Care Tax, and Frank’s Law, are concerned about the effects of this charging;
- considers that social care is essential to enabling them to enjoy their human rights;
- further considers that the current local authority charging regimes may be discriminatory in applying different rules to people of different ages without sufficient objective justification,
- and notes the calls to explore ways of making social care charging fairer with a view to ending the practice altogether.
