In Care Survivor Support Fund Service

The Scottish Government has made a commitment to work with survivors to develop a Survivor Support Fund Service. This was a key recommendation of the InterAction plan. As part of the engagement process we have gathered initial views of survivors on the development of a survivor support fund.

£13.5m over five years (2015-2020) was announced by Ms Constance, Cabinet Secretary for Education and Lifelong Learning to develop a bespoke In Care Survivor Support Fund Service.

The approach and delivery model that is being taken forward will be based on an expanded brokerage, development and commissioning model designed around the needs of survivors. It will be a Scotland wide service with outreach capabilities to enable survivors in all geographical locations to have access to resources, support, care and treatment as part of a 'core' service provision.
