Question S1W-3832

The working party will examine how best local authority resources, enhanced by the transfer of DSS resources, might operate for the good of young people requiring throughcare and aftercare and offer advice to Scottish Ministers. This will include consideration of such issues as ring-fencing of resources; a safety net for young people who have lost contact with their local authority; and an appeals procedure.

The working party will report periodically to Ministers to assist appropriate implementation procedures to come into effect in the course of next year.
