The hard work and dedication of Scotland’s Dementia Ambassadors to support learning that helps improve the lives of people with dementia were recognised at their third national conference in Glasgow on Friday 3 March. Around 120 Dementia Ambassadors were at the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) hosted event to celebrate their achievements.

The Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) increased its Register of social service workers by more than 13,000 and consulted on both the review of the Codes of Practice (the set of national standards for all social service workers in Scotland) and the move to a new model of regulation over the past year. These are just some of the year’s highlights outlined in the SSSC annual report and accounts 2015/16. The report gives an overview of our work and how we have managed our resources as we work towards the outcomes in our strategic plan.
