Scotland’s Health Minister Alex Neil has said that the Scottish Government is prepared to help fund a study into learning disability care services, if Glasgow City Council delays the closure of 3 day centres in the city by two years.  The proposal has been welcomed by many carers, who have been against the closures and have campaigned to prevent them over the past year.  The study would look at the feasibility of  options for developing services for people with learning disabilities, while the centres remain open.

The Council wants those affected by the closures to use personal budgets to purchase services in their communities and has been looking at ways in which this would work.
