Appropriate agencies

‘Appropriate agencies’ means agencies that have a legal obligation to help local authorities carry out their duties under the ASL Act. These include any Health Board, any other local authority including its social work services, Skills Development Scotland, all colleges of further education and all institutes of higher education. The law also enables Scottish Ministers to name other agencies in the future.
