The ‘Care…about physical activity (CAPA) improvement programme’ will work with partnerships across Scotland to build the skills, knowledge and confidence of social care staff to enable those they care for to increase their levels of physical activity and move more often. Also, social care staff will discover ways to be more active themselves. The Care Inspectorate has been commissioned by the Scottish Government to lead the programme.
