UNISON Scotland, Social Work Action Network and Defend Glasgow Services have organised a community conference on Saturday 10th March 2012 which will provide an opportunity for service users, workers, carers and families and those interested in the issues around personalisation to come together.

There will be an open panel discussion, workshops to focus on key issues for all those affected and open floor discussions on latest developments, and the opportunity to hear from and meet those most affected. The conference will also discuss our aims as a wider community group and what we can do to make personalisation work in Glasgow and the whole of Scotland.

Voice @ Work - Bulletin for all Community & Voluntary Sector members (Summer 2008) now online


The community and voluntary sector is increasingly central to providing public services in Scotland.

As part of a major review of bargaining structures in 2009, UNISON set up a new service group called 'Community' covering the voluntary and community sector. This recognises the importance of the services which previously came under the umbrella of local government and health. The UK group's first chair is Scotland's Stephen Brown from Quarriers.
