Welcome to the Care Inspectorate’s page on Meaningful Connection, Visiting and Anne’s Law. Here you can find information and resources for people who live in care homes, families and friends, and care home providers and staff. Please use the tabs on the left to navigate.

The Meaningful Connection, Visiting and Anne’s Law Project was set up by the Care Inspectorate with funding from Scottish Government to support and promote the importance of all types of meaningful connection for people who live in adult and older people’s care homes, and to help prepare the sector for the implementation of Anne’s Law. The project is based on the core principle that experiencing connection which is valued, meaningful and person-centred, is essential to everyone’s health, wellbeing and personhood, and fundamental to human rights.

We will continue to add to and update the information on this page as appropriate, so please check back regularly.
