The Social Work Scotland Justice Standing Committee is made up of Chief Social Work Officers; managers from justice social work services; academics; and those working in the private and voluntary sectors. We have members from all across Scotland and meet bi-monthly.
The Justice Standing Committee works to influence and shape legislation and policy relating to justice social work service delivery; to provide strategic leadership to the sector; to support the development of our workforce using evidence based approaches; to foster a culture of continuous learning and improvement and to promote the unique role, value and contribution of justice social work.
Our meetings discuss key issues in justice social work services and provide an opportunity to network and for people with a similar focus to work our challenges and offer advice.
The Subgroups support the work of the Justice Standing Committee by taking forward specific pieces of work identified and enables the sharing of practice, networking, supports the committee feedback loop regarding new and emerging practice issues “on the ground”, and respond to particular emerging national needs e.g. responses to draft legislation on Adoption.
Meeting dates for the Subgroups are available at the bottom of this page.
