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.
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.
Iriss annual champions event took place at New Lanark Mill Hotel on 12th and 13th November 2014. Twenty six champions made their way from as far north as Shetland and as far south as Dumfries and Galloway.
