Care Inspectorate & HMIPS Prison-based social work: thematic review

Care Inspectorate are pleased to share with you their ‘Prison-based social work: thematic review’ report, published today on the website at:

Undertaken in partnership with our colleagues from HM Inspectorate of Prisons for Scotland, the review considers the strengths and areas for improvement in the governance, leadership, and accountability of prison-based social work in Scotland.

In the review, they note improvement actions to be taken forward by the Scottish Government, the Scottish Prison Service, and justice social work services, along with other key partners. They also outline next steps in relation to future scrutiny of prison-based social work services.

Care Inspectorate would like to thank everyone who contributed to the review by completing their survey, meeting with them to share their views and experiences, and providing feedback on the report. Your assistance and contributions have been invaluable.
