Report that provides evidence on dementia-friendly communities from the perspective of people affected by dementia and their carers. It explores the barriers that people face in their community, how they would like to be engaged with their local area and the support they need to do so.
This guide provides practical advice and information on how to weigh-up information and options for action when faced with situations in which major decisions need to be made. This guide was informed by a study of over 100 carers with proxy decision-making powers, funded by the Nuffield Foundation.
Study with overall aim to provide macro-level financial and economic evidence on the potential costs, benefits and impacts of an increase in the uptake of SDS in Scotland.
Scottish review that builds on the first review in a series of UK wide reviews of child neglect undertaken by Action for Children in partnership with the University of Stirling and addresses three questions:
- How many children are currently experiencing neglect in Scotland?
- How good are we at recognising children who are at risk of, or are experiencing neglect?
- How well are we helping children at risk of, or currently experiencing neglect?
Working paper that seeks to add to the current knowledge base regarding third sector organisations and personalisation through exploring it specifically within the context of support for carers.
Paper that explores the Scottish evidence for a link between social capital and health outcomes in order to inform the ongoing development of an assets-based approach to addressing health problems and inequalities.
It uses data from two sources – the 2009 Scottish Health Survey and the 2009 Scottish Social Attitudes survey, although the majority of the paper focuses on the former due to the inclusion of self-assessed health plus WEMWBS variables.
Consilium Research and Consultancy Ltd (Consilium) and TWRI Policy and Research (TWRI) were commissioned by NHS Education for Scotland (NES) in January 2013 to map the knowledge support for care of older people in health and social care partnerships. The research focuses on the local context in two emergent Health and Social Care Partnerships - Edinburgh City and Argyll & Bute.
Report that considers how well implementation of the recommendations of the review has progressed in the year since the review’s publication, and how the child protection landscape as a whole is changing. The overall conclusion of the report is that progress is moving in the right direction but that it needs to move faster. There are promising signs that some reforms are encouraging new ways of thinking and working and so improving services for children.
Review that considers the views and experiences of children and young people on child protection systems in Scotland. It aims to inform service delivery, communications on child protection and future potential ways to engage children and young people on this issue.
The findings of this review will form the basis for future research on gathering the views of children and young people on child protection systems in Scotland.
The ‘Sight and Sound Project’ used creative sensory methods to explore how young people who are looked after feel that they belong, or do not belong, in the places that they live.
