Thursday 8 February 2018 - Wheatley College, Glasgow

We are pleased to announce that we will be hosting our first Scottish Welfare Fund Independent Review Service engagement event on Thursday 8 February 2018.  This will be an opportunity for delegates to share good practice with a series of speakers, meet SPSO staff and participate in interactive workshops focusing on areas which will include:

  • good decision-making
  • ensuring that the SWF is accessible to all and that staff delivering the scheme are supported when managing difficult behaviour
  • quality assurance

The Scottish Public Services Ombudsman, Rosemary Agnew, will be speaking at the event, as well as speakers from a range of organisations involved in the delivery of the Scottish Welfare Fund and organisations supporting applicants.

This event is intended for practitioners with responsibility for SWF delivery in councils, and third sector stakeholders who support applicants.
