mobile-menu mobile-menu-arrow Menu

UNISON is urging all of its members to respond to this request from the SSSC Chief Executive, Anna Fowlie.

“We’re starting research to help develop our next strategic plan, looking ahead to our priorities for 2017-2020. The first step is a survey asking for as many people as possible’s views on the SSSC, our role and our work up to now.  I’d like to gather as many views as possible from people with an interest in the work we do. Why Research, an independent market research company based in Scotland, is doing this research for us, starting with a short online survey over the next few weeks, followed with face-to-face or telephone discussions early in 2016.

The survey should only take 10 minutes to do and is open now until 15 January. It launched at the end of last week and already we have 800 responses.  I’d really appreciate your help with this, both by completing it yourself but also if possible by disseminating it and encouraging people to fill it in.

You can click on the link below to take part and have your say in what we do and how we do it over the next few years.

Take the survey here

We’re inviting all SSSC registrants, employers to take part. Could I also ask you to share it with your colleagues, members and others who have an interest in our work.

Thank you very much and have a great Christmas.

Anna Fowlie, Chief Executive, Scottish Social Services Council”
