We are the regulator for the social work, social care and children and young people workforce in Scotland. Our vision is that the people of Scotland can count on social services being provided by a trusted, skilled, confident and valued workforce. We want to live and work in a Scotland that values its social services and the workforce that delivers those services in our communities, to our citizens. To deliver our vision, we will focus on our two main areas of work. The first is protecting the public by registering the workforce and acting where someone falls short of the standards we have set. The second is to work with others to develop the workforce, attract people to careers in this sector and make sure the workforce has the skills and professional knowledge needed to meet the demands of the changing landscape of social work, social care and children and young people services.
