Iriss Forum 2010
Published on 10 Mar 2011

Iriss Forum 2010 - Challenging times, creative solutions was the first Iriss Forum. Those who attended had the opportunity to hear from a number of speakers and found out how Iriss can support the social services workforce to 'do things differently'. Was focused on how solutions can be found by working in partnership to deliver successful outcomes for the people that access Scotland's social services.

This session described how Iriss and Stonewall Scotland collaborated to create a web-based multimedia learning resource to help public sector policy makers and other staff better understand the needs of LGBT people who use their services. Was described the development process, which included devising scenarios, commissioning scripts, casting actors and organising location filming.
