Date: 1 May 2024
Topic: Early Years News

The revised SSSC Codes of Practice for Social Service Workers and Employers (the Codes) come into effect from today, 1 May.

Welcoming the revised Codes, SSSC Interim Chief Executive, Maree Allison, said:

“The Codes let workers and employers know what is expected of them and support everyday practice by setting clear standards, behaviours and values.

“I’d like to thank everyone we spoke to over the past two years during our engagement and consultation on the Codes, you’ve helped us to make sure the changes reflect what you think is important and current policy and practice.
‘The revised Codes mean individuals using services and their families can have confidence in care that is delivered by a trusted, skilled, confident and valued workforce.”
