Our written responses to major external consultations are available on this page.

If you would like to find out more about any of these responses, or other consultations that may not be listed here, please contact the Strategic Performance and Engagement Department by emailing:

In the interests of ensuring maximum transparency, we make every effort to secure consent to publish all responses in full, subject only to necessary redactions in the interests of data protection. The SSSC has to comply with the requirements of the Data Protection Act.

One of the ways we engage with our stakeholders is by consulting with them when we are planning to change the way that we do something. It is important for us to take into account their views and input.

We promise to make consultations as accessible and widely available as possible. We do this by putting details and relevant links and documents on our website.

As the governing body of social service workers in Scotland, the SSSC monitors analyses and comments on developments and responding to discussion papers and consultation documents issued by government, regulatory and other bodies.

In this section, you can find information about our previous consultations.
