Fitness to Practise and Registration


The purpose of the group is to establish a channel for communication between the SSSC and voluntary sector care and support providers, particularly those associated with the CCPS Workforce Development Network. The first meeting of this group took place on 19th September 2014 at which a remit for the group was agreed.

The meetings will promote provider engagement with the SSSC as it develops and/or reviews its processes or systems relating to the SSSC’s registration process and requirements associated with fitness to practise.
