Event : Discussion on Audit Scotland Report – A Watershed for Social work in Scotland?

30th November 2016 @ 12:30 pm - 5:00 pm

A Watershed for Social work in Scotland?

In response to Audit Scotland’s report on  ‘Social Work in Scotland’ Scottish Care alongside partners including Alliance Scotland, Iriss and the SSSC are holding an event to discuss findings and next steps from Audit Scotland’s report on  ‘Social Work in Scotland’.

 

If you would like to find out more about the findings of the report as well as to contribute towards the debate on the future of Social Work in Scotland Scottish Care invite you to join us at an event in Glasgow on Wednesday 30th November to take part.

 

Audit Scotland recently concluded that social work in Scotland is at a ‘watershed’, with vital decisions needing to be taken on the provision of services in the future.

 

Audit Scotland also stressed that the public and people who access the range of social work services provided across Scotland must be more involved in shaping future provision, with a debate required “on the level, the nature and affordability of services.”

 

Dr Donald Macaskill, Scottish Care CEO said:
“Scottish Care is delighted to support this event. The Audit Scotland report raises important challenges and issues which need to be addressed by all partners to endure we continue to adequately support our most vulnerable citizens.”

 

Scottish Care, The ALLIANCE, Audit Scotland and partners are holding an event in Glasgow on the afternoon of Wednesday 30 November. The session will bring together a wide range of stakeholders to consider the issues raised in the report, stimulate discussion and gather views on the future direction of social work.

The event is open to:

  • People who use support and services
  • unpaid carers
  • scrutiny bodies
  • representatives of third sector organisations
  • social workers
  • providers of health and social care
  • Scottish Government officials, councillors and other politicians.
