Women’s Aid South Lanarkshire achieved all six National Service Standards and has been awarded its Certificate of Achievement by Scottish Women’s Aid.

LGBT Charter Award

Women’s Aid South Lanarkshire and East Renfrewshire has received the Bronze LGBT Charter award. We recognise the importance of demonstrating our commitment to LGBT people in South Lanarkshire and East Renfrewshire. By working through the Charter’s programme, towards the Silver and Gold Awards, we aim to remove barriers to LGBT people resulting in more diverse and inclusive services for LGBT people.

SSSC Registration

Our worker workers have the right skills, knowledge and values to do their role and are registered with the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC). To be on the register workers must already hold or be working towards a job specific qualification. The SSSC Codes of Practice set out the standards that workers and employers have to meet. If workers fail to meet these standards the SSSC can investigate their fitness to practise and if Women’s Aid South Lanarkshire and East Renfrewshire fails to meet the Codes the Care Inspectorate can take action.
