Webwatch: New SSSC App for Adult Support and Protection

Written by The Editorial Team

The Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC) has developed a new App to be used as a reference resource for all workers whose role includes supporting or caring for adults.

The App is available for smartphones and tablets (Android, iPhone and iPad):
