The Review of Provision for Students with Disabilities was initiated by the Funding for Learners (FFL) division of the Scottish Executive in spring 2005 in order to examine the support available to students with disability-related additional needs studying at Further Education (FE) and Higher Education (HE) level in Scotland. The main aim of the project is to consider options to improve the efficient and effective use of the existing financial resource for individual support for disabled students, within the context of institutional funding to support widening access. The review also considers the feasibility of introducing a single system of support, which would be based on need, rather than level of study.

The Adults with Incapacity (Scotland) Act 2000 introduces some new arrangements for making decisions about personal welfare and managing property and financial affairs for adults whose capacity to do so is impaired. The Act allows for people to anticipate the possibility of their own incapacity by granting a power of attorney in relation to property, financial affairs or personal welfare. “Continuing attorneys” are attorneys with powers over property and financial affairs which commence or continue on the granter’s incapacity. “Welfare attorneys” are attorneys with powers over personal welfare (including health and research) which commence on the granter’s incapacity.
