SDSS Members Opportunity to Review Social Work Scotland’s SDS Report

Date posted: May 14, 2018

Members’ Event-Review of Social Work Scotland’s Report:’Best Practice and Local Authority Progress in Self-Directed Support’

Social Work Scotland were asked to work with Local Authorites to find examples of best practice in SDS. Whilst they are aware of some of the issues in terms of the implementation of the SDS Act and in the use of the approach within social work, they were asked to find examples of where and how SDS is working well.

Local Authorities were invited to take part and 15 out of the 32 Local Authorities made someone available for the research. These 15 areas were:

  • Angus
  • City of Edinburgh
  • Dumfries and Galloway
  • East Ayrshire
  • East Dunbartonshire
  • East Lothian
  • East Renfrewshire
  • Falkirk
  • Fife
  • Highland
  • Midlothian
  • Perth and Kinross
  • South Ayrshire
  • Scottish Borders
  • South Lanarkshire

Social Work Scotland would like SDSS Members to have the opportunity to Review the Report before publication and have a series of questions for members to consider. Full consideration will be given to any comments made about their findings and the way they have presented them and they will look to incorporate suggestions where possible.

If you would like to influence Social Work’s Scotland’s Report, especially if your Local Authority has been involved in this – this is your opportunity!

If you would like to be involved in the Review of the Report, you can do this in 2 ways:

  1. Send comments directly to ourselves and we can pass these on to Social Work Scotland
  2. Come to our Review Meeting in Glasgow to share your thoughts and ideas directly with Social Work Scotland

The Review Meeting will be held on:

  • Tuesday 29th May 2018
  • Venue: Glasgow Centre for Inclusive Living (GCIL),
  • Time: 11am – 1pm
  • Lunch will be provided – let us know any dietary requirements
  • Travel and support expenses can be covered
