What is the SSSC?

The Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) is the regulator for the social service workforce in Scotland. Our work means the people of Scotland can count on social services being provided by a trusted, skilled and confident workforce.

We protect the public by registering social service workers, setting standards for their practice, conduct, training and education and by supporting their professional development. Where people fall below the standards of practice and conduct we can investigate and take action.

We register workers in:

  • day care of children
  • residential child care
  • care homes
  • care at home
  • housing support
  • adult day care services
  • school hostels or residential special schools
  • social work students
  • social workers.

How does using the logo help services?

Social service providers can use the SSSC logo to show their staff are registered with us and provide reassurance to people using services that workers have the right skills, knowledge and values to do their role.

To be on the register workers must already hold or be working towards a job specific qualification. To check if workers at the service you are using are registered you can Search the register.

Our Codes of Practice set out the standards that workers and employers have to meet. If workers fail to meet these standards we can investigate their fitness to practise. If employers fail to meet the Codes the Care Inspectorate can take action.

If you have concerns about a worker see our Raising a concern page.
