Scottish Care’s Executive Committee assists the management in the day to day running of the company, agrees strategies and suggests policies for adoption by the National Committee.

The policy making body of Scottish Care, the National Committee, generally consists of a member from each Local Authority region. An automatic place is offered to corporate member providers; corporate members are designated as an organisation with more than 15 care homes.
