Sharing the care

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    The NRCCI is an inclusive review, involving an extensive group of stakeholders, which is building on a long-term programme of change for the residential sector. Government, employer and workforce commitment to change is evident, for example, in the inclusion of the residential childcare workforce within the first phase of social services professional registration. It is also seen in the provision and take-up of a variety of training, development and research services delivered by the Scottish Institute for Residential Child Care (SIRCC)2. The activities and commitment of the residential sector, the work of SIRCC, and various Scottish legislative and regulatory mechanisms are substantially increasing qualification levels and specialist knowledge within the sector.
