Our Annual Report for 2021 – 2022 was published at today’s AGM (16 June 2022)
We are pleased to share this Annual Report and encourage you to give it a read. This report reflects and evidences the work and efforts of the Scottish Care team over the past year, during what has been a challenging time for the social care sector.
This report is divided into two different sections:
The ‘Activities and Achievements‘ section provides a business overview of Scottish Care: our aim and objectives, strategic priorities, and additional workstreams. It also covers what we have achieved over the past year, outlining the activities of our strategic priorities and workstreams.
The ‘Finance and Governance‘ section gives detailed reporting of our financial performance and outlines our approach to overall governance via the Executive Committee and other representative groups.
You can access the two sections of the Annual Report using the buttons below.
Thank you and we hope you enjoy reading the report.
