Published on 16 Mar 2020

We are aware that this is a very challenging and unprecedented time for those working in social services. Iriss will continue to support the workforce by providing knowledge, resources and tools for practice.

The Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) has brought together information on Coronavirus to help social service workers and employers. This information will be updated regularly to reflect the fast moving and changing situation. 

It includes information and guidance for social or community care and residential settings, guidance for nursing home and residential care residents, and guidance from Health Protection Scotland, Scottish Government and the Care Inspectorate.
