Ahead of key parliamentary debates or committee meetings we may submit a briefing note setting out the social work position on an issue.

These have been crafted to inform MSPs around specific issues and so will not be a complete picture of all the challenges and opportunities in a particular policy area. It may be helpful to read these briefings in conjunction with the official report of the relevant parliamentary debate or committee meeting.
