Telling the story of the thousands of children who migrated from the Orphan Homes of Scotland to to new lives in Canada, The Golden Bridge was inspired by an original exhibition created and displayed by Heatherbank Museum of Social Work in Glasgow Caledonian University. The Golden Bridge project was a collaboration between Iriss, Glasgow Caledonian University and Quarriers.

Shaping the future

Making a successful transition from student to social worker

Student

What's it like for a student leaving university and making the transition into the world of work?

Iriss teamed up with Glasgow Caledonian University, SSSC, the Scottish Association of Social Workers and the Scottish Government to find out. About 120 final year students as well as newly qualified social workers gathered at GCU on 22 January 2015 to share information and experience with aim of helping to shape the future direction of social work.

Imagining the future

What's next for Scotland's social services? An animated exploration.

This animation explores the technical, medical and cultural forces that will shape the future of care. Alex Chisholm is a man in his in his 70s with multiple conditions, poor diet and high alcohol consumption. We use episodes in his life to explore what care might look like in ten or fifteen years. We suggest that by 2025 there may be greater opportunities to offer older people richer, less isolated lives in which they are able to exercise more choice and control.
