Conference programme

What is adult social care?

A discussion: 31st March 2017
The Grassmarket Community Project, Edinburgh

This is a question we are all struggling with as demand for services increase and expectation about aht social care can deliver is high.

Social Work Scotland as the professional leadership body for social work wants to have this conversation with you and we invite you to participate in a discussion with us aimed at framing and focussing the debate around adult social care in Scotland.

Our Community Care Standing Committee is going to relaunch at this event where we will tackle some of the fundamental questions we are currently debating in our own areas; we will give them a national airing before inviting people to continue the conversation, if they wish, in our committee.

We are passionate about the power of supporting and caring for people who are frail, having learning or physical disabilities, mental ill health, sensory impairments or those who are vulnerable members of our communities. we know the huge and positive difference getting the right support and care to people at the right time and in the right way makes.
