Getting Our Priorities Right

Morning all

Busy morning for me today!

Scottish Government has published its consultation on Getting Our Priorities Right – updated Good Practice Guidance for use by all practitioners working with children, young people and families affected by substance use. The paper covers policy frameworks, describing the challenge, assessing risks and improving outcomes, working together, along with a useful pullout for practitioners. This is a detailed, but I think ultimately useful document for all social work practitioners.

You can access all the information relating to the consultation via this link or you can read the document here: Scottish Government: Getting Our Priorities Right.
