This describes how a collaboration between Scottish Government, the NHS Education for Scotland, the Institute for Research and Innovation in Social Services, the Imporovement Service for Local Government, the Scottish Social Services Council and the Association of Directors of Social Work will improve outcomes through putting new knowledge into practice.

Executive Summary

This strategy and action plan for 2012-15 builds on the solid foundation laid down by the first knowledge strategy for social services – “Sharing knowledge, improving practice, changing lives 2009-11”.

The strategy is relevant to all those with responsibility for, or an interest in, any aspect of Scotland’s social services - how they are delivered and improved and the outcomes that they achieve for people, families and communities. It is of particular relevance for those, and in particular employers, who have a role in building the capacity and capability of the workforce in order to improve practice.

Recognising the increasingly close working of staff across the health and care sectors this strategy is intended to align wherever appropriate and possible with the implementation phase of NHS Scotland’s Knowledge into Action Review – supporting multi-agency and cross-professions working and maximising shared use of resources. The strategy is an integral part of the broader set of activity designed to build a social services workforce which is competent, confident and valued.
