ROSEANNA WELCOMES EXPANSION TO FREE PERSONAL CARE

Ms Roseanna Cunningham MSP has highlighted the expansion of free personal care, which comes into force from Monday 1 April.

She said:

“As of Monday, free personal care – previously available only to those over the age of 65 – will be extended to people of all ages who are assessed as requiring it.
 
“This welcome change is a result of what has become known as ‘Frank’s Law’ and has come about following a tireless campaign by Amanda Kopel, widow of former Dundee United footballer, Frank Kopel who was diagnosed with dementia at the age of 59.

“As well as making the necessary changes to the law, the Scottish Government has backed them up with an investment of £30 million of new funding to local authorities.

“This is a change which will help thousands of people across Scotland receive the support that they need and I want to take the opportunity to bring to the attention of my constituents the availability of this important help.”
