Four key appointments made

    Four key appointments have been announced to bodies designed to
    change the face of social care.

    Carole Wilkinson, currently director of social work and housing
    at Falkirk Council and president of the Association of Directors of
    Social Work, is to become chief executive of the Scottish Social
    Services Council. The council’s convenor will be Morag
    Alexander, currently chair of the Early Years Advisory Group of
    Children in Scotland and a board member of Turning Point
    Scotland.

    Jacquie Roberts, currently director of social work for Dundee
    Council, is to be the chief executive of the Scottish Commission on
    the Regulation of Care, while the convenor will be Mary Hartnoll,
    formerly director of social work for Glasgow Council and previously
    Strathclyde Regional Council.

    Malcolm Chisholm, deputy minister for community care, was keen
    to point out that four women had been appointed to such influential
    posts. He said: “Together, the individuals appointed today will
    lead the drive to systematically improve the protection of older
    people, children and vulnerable adults in Scotland, ensuring that
    the care they receive is delivered to nationally agreed
    standards.”
