On Tuesday 18 March 2014, people from social services organisations across the public, voluntary and independent sectors, as well as individuals who use services and support in Scotland, came together to mark World Social Work Day at the second Social Services Expo 2014, which was held at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre.
Thank you to everyone who took part and to all the people and partner organisations who made such a wide range of contributions!
The event highlighted the range of social services and supports available across Scotland and showcased some of the effective, innovative and collaborative developments that are happening. Presentations from the day are available on the SSEC 2014 page.
Some feedback comments:
The event had a really good vibe, good flow and the content was varied, informative and insightful. Really enjoyed Francesca’s performance at the end
The day was well structured but not formal which I really appreciated, enjoyed the fluidity of the day. Was my first time attending and found it very valuable
Really well run day, in a great venue and a real buzz about the event
Learned something from all the workshops I attended
Of course we are also grateful for the feedback we received which was not so positive – in regard to some of the content, timings, difficulty of getting into sessions etc. – and we will definitely learn from these comments and take up the many useful suggestions for any future events.
Information on the 2013 event is also available.
