Adult Support & Protection Services self-evaluation

TO: All Staff
FROM: Jane Mackie, Chief Social Work Officer
DATE: 10th July 2019
SUBJECT: Self-Evaluation of Adult Support & Protection services
As many of you are already aware, we have completed a self-evaluation exercise of how our Adult Support and Protection services are delivered.
Identifying adults at risk of harm is everyone’s responsibility and it is vital that we ensure that our processes and services are as robust as we can possibility make them.
During the transition to an integrated joint partnership we have seen some excellent examples of working using best practice; most notably in collaborative working with our partners both internally and externally. We are keen to build on the existing examples of best practice and will now use the information from the self-evaluation process to form an Improvement Action Plan.
The Care Inspectorate have indicated that they plan to carry out a thematic review of Adult Support and Protection services in Moray during the next 18 months, and we will soon know when we can expect to be inspected. Irrespective of any review, the Improvement Action Plan will be implemented later in the summer.
As Chief Social Work Officer, I am leading this process, with input from our partners, in particular the Public Protection Unit of Police Scotland here in Moray. Other partners and stakeholders have been involved in the self-evaluation workshops and have contributed their expertise to this process.
I am pleased to share a copy of the self-evaluation report with you, and I would welcome any comments you may have in response. Once the Improvement Action Plan has been agreed, I will also send a copy on by email.
