EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

The Registration of Social Workers and Social Service Workers in Care Services (Scotland) Regulations 2013 (“the principal Regulations”) requires social service workers to register with the Scottish Social Services Council in order to work in a care service. For social service workers already in post on the coming into force of the principal Regulations, mandatory registration only applies to those social service workers named in the Schedule from the dates set out in that Schedule.

These Regulations amend the Schedule to the principal Regulations by inserting a new table which specifies two additional descriptions of social service workers, supervisor in a care at home service and supervisor in a housing support service, and sets a mandatory registration date of 30th June 2017 for workers who worked in the relevant role on 30th June 2014.

(2)

Section 104(2) has been modified by paragraph 5 of schedule 3 to the Interpretation and Legislative Reform (Scotland) Act 2010 (asp 10).

(4)

“Care at home service” and “housing support service” have the meaning given by article 1(2) of the Regulation of Care (Social Service Workers) (Scotland) Order 2005 (S.S.I. 2005/318 as amended by S.S.I. 2014/129).
