“The Care Commission has provided figures to the Scottish Parliament\'s Local Government and Communities Committee meeting in June, showing that 89-92% of voluntary sector care at home services receive only high gradings (4s, 5s and 6s) whereas this is achieved by only 65-72% of services operated by local authorities and the private sector. Taking into account the likely unit costs of such services, this appears to indicate that voluntary sector care at home services may be the optimum Best Value option.”
