Activity: Membership types › Membership of committee
I have represented the Scottish Appropriate Adult Network (SAAN) on the Forensic Services Review chaired by Derek Barron which is due to report in March. My role was to make the review aware of the importance of the role of appropriate adults to forensic services. I manage the Appropriate Adult Services for Glasgow & 5 surrounding local authorities as part of my duties as an Out of Hours Operations Manager. The service became a statutory service as a result of legislative changes at the beginning of 2020 and the service is disparately organised across Scotland. Part of my role was to make the review aware of these differences across Scotland and articulate the views of SAAN.
