Audit Scotland report raises concerns about sustainability of social work services

Audit Scotland has released a report on social work in Scotland, which concludes that current approaches to delivering social work services will not be sustainable in the long term.

In a climate of even greater funding constraints, It recommends that local authorities and Integration Joint Boards take a more strategic approach to their social work planning in conjunction with  Scottish Government and also involve service providers, service users and carers more closely in decision making at a local level.
