This project was established in response to a request from East Ayrshire Social Work to work with Iriss to explore case recording practice and how records can be more inclusive and accessible. In part, this request was informed by the recommendations coming from the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse in Australia around accessibility for care leavers to their records.
Following a scoping review and initial workshop undertaken in early 2019, we ran a series of half-day workshops over winter 2019/20, with participation from practitioners across Health & Social Care Partnership (HSCP) services. Uptake and commitment from services was strong throughout the workshops, with an average of 17 practitioners and managers from social work, children’s homes, out of hours, community care and health visitors taking part.
The three project reports are now available on our website, along with other resources on the topic of recording practice.
