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.
