This year's annual returns will be available to service providers for completion between 18 January and 28 February 2021.

Regulating managers of registered services


The Care Inspectorate and the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) have issued a joint statement to set out our policy on the regulation of managers and clarify the position regarding applications for managers who do not hold relevant qualifications.

The regulation of managers of registered care services is a shared responsibility between the SSSC and the Care Inspectorate.

The Care Inspectorate is responsible for providers complying with regulation to ensure that each registered service has a manager in place who is fit.
