Caring for Older People in Scotland 3rd Annual Conference
A Scottish law firm with national and international capability, Brodies has a reputation for uncompromising quality, expertise and innovation.
The size of our Public Sector Services Group (PSSG) and breadth of its experience is unique in Scotland. We assist our clients in addressing legislative, economic and political developments; driving improvement in services; securing value for money and delivering change.
Headed by Jackie McGuire, the PSSG continues to go from strength to strength. More than 70 solicitors from across the firm are now actively engaged in the delivery of services to the Scottish public sector.
Public sector budget cuts will pose a challenge for the development of new transport and community infrastructure and affordable housing. Brodies has been advising local government and public sector bodies on kick-starting strategic roads infrastructure. We have also been advising on a range of asset management initiatives, designed to maximise the value of public sector assets.
The Care Inspectorate is a scrutiny body which supports improvement. That means we look at the quality of care in Scotland to ensure it meets high standards. Where we find that improvement is needed, we support services to make positive changes.
Our vision is that everyone experiences safe, high-quality care that meets their needs, rights and choices.
Our 600 staff work across Scotland, specialising in health and social care, early learning and childcare, social work, children’s services, and community justice.
Carr Gomm is a leading provider of person-centred social care and support services across Scotland. A registered charity (SC033491) and not-for-profit company, Carr Gomm currently supports almost 1,800 people in 16 local authority areas. Working in partnership with councils, the NHS and other agencies, we support people with autistic spectrum conditions, learning disabilities, dementia, mental health issues, physical and/or sensory impairments, spinal injuries, old age, homelessness, and addictions.
Our approach is fundamentally person-centred: we tailor the support provided to the needs, ambitions and wishes of each individual. This can involve supporting people to manage their personal care, to improve and manage their physical and mental health, to connect with their community through work, education or social activities, and to manage their finances and home. We also provide intensive specialist 24-hour support to people with complex needs. Our aim is to support people to live the life they choose, in a way that’s right for them.
We are the national intermediary and network for Scotland’s voluntary health organisations.
We promote greater recognition for the role of our sector, and we work with our members to influence health agendas, policy and practice.
