Independent Social Workers (Scotland)
SASW has a contact network of Independent Social Workers, who support and advise each other predominantly by group e-mail. They also highlight and provide evidence on issues SASW can take up on their behalf, and meet on an ad hoc basis at the Edinburgh Office.
The issues for independent registration and CPD in Scotland as well as cross border working, can be quite technical, depending on the field of work, and many members have found this resource very valuable.
We have also been able to take up issues on their behalf with employers , where an individual may have found themselves identifiable and vulnerable.
