ADSW is the professional association that represents senior managers of local government social work services in Scotland.
Social work services are a hugely important service to the people of Scotland. Our services support people, in the context of their families and communities, so that they can make positive choices to live the lives they want to in a dignified and independent way. Every year an estimated 650,000 Scots and their families are supported by social work services, provided by a workforce of 195,000. 

ADSW works to make sure that the services that our staff provide are the best they can be, that any changes to legislation and policy is well thought out and informed and ultimately that the vulnerable people who rely on our care and support get the best that we can provide.
