The secretary of state for Scotland, Michael Forsyth, today published a leaflet explaining the work of the Social Work Services Inspectorate which is being issued to the new local authorities.

The leaflet sets out the purpose and responsibilities of the Social Work Services Inspectorate and describes how it carries out its work. It includes a code of practice for the involvement of lay people in the work of the inspectorate. The document has achieved a Crystal Mark award from the Campaign for Plain English.

Mr Forsyth said: 'The Social Work Services Inspectorate's purpose is to work with others to continually improve social work services so that they genuinely meet people's needs and so that the public can have full confidence in these services.

'This leaflet sets out very clearly what they do and how they do it. I hope it will be read by all who have an interest in social work services. I am delighted that it has been awarded a Crystal Mark by the Campaign for Plain English.'
