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 showcased how Iriss and Scottish Consortium for Learning Disability (SCLD) collaborated together to visualise local authority data on people with learning disabilities. The taster demonstrated the steps for preparing and visualising the data, and what new insights the approach has given SCLD.
