Foundations for practice eBooks

Principles of care

The Principles of Care eBook has been designed to help readers develop better understanding of the principles and values which underpin social service practice. These principles are the keystones upon which your care and support practice rests. If yo adhere to these principles, you will meet the expectations of your employers, the SSSC, people who use services and, most importantly, yourself. Although this learning resource has been designed to enable you to develop knowledge and to promote good practice all your work, you may find it particularly helpful if you are undertaking, or are about to undertake, a Scottish Vocational Qualification (SVQ) in Social Service and Healthcare.
