Witness Seminar and Open Forum Series (No 2)
What Part did the Association of Directors of Social Work (ADSW) Play in Scottish Social Work Policy and Implementation
Recorded on 29
The Association of Directors of Social Work was formed in 1969 as
a direct result of The Social Work (Scotland) Act 1968. The
act brought together into a comprehensive service existing
provisions for children, elderly, physically and mentally
handicapped persons and offenders, which had been previously
exercised through the Children, Welfare, Health and Probation
Committees. The Act created social work departments and established
social work as a professional service within local government.
This seminar aimed at capturing the role played by the ADSW from its
formation through to the 1990s.
