During 2014/15, IRISS has been working with a range of partners on a project focusing on homelessness in Scotland.
Fit for the Future is a joint IRISS and Scottish Care project that has been working to inspire better outcomes for older people in Scotland through working with providers from the independent sector.
The project worked with care homes, care at home providers and the people who access them in four areas: Falkirk, North Lanarkshire, Argyll and Bute and West Lothian. The aim was to imagine and test different approaches to the planning and delivery of care.
IRISS is trying to understand practitioners’ experiences of delivering care and support in Scotland. Part of this project will be to undertake a survey in partnership with the Guardian to reach a broad audience across Scotland.
Happy New Year!! We hope you had a wonderful festive holiday and wish you the very best for 2015.
To give you a snapshot of our busy 2014, we've produced a review of all the action.
A Big Thank You to the many who support, champion and challenge our work in Scotland and beyond.
Our Director, Alison Petch, is due to retire in April 2015. In the New Year our Board will be recruiting her successor. Could this be you or someone you know? We want as many people as possible to hear about the opportunity and to reflect on whether this might be something for themselves or something they would wish to bring to the attention of others.
We invite you to mull this over with your wine and mince pies and watch out in the New Year for the details of the post.
Best wishes for the festive season.
