The Social Work Department Service Plan Review will go before councillors on Monday (September 28).

The Social Work and Health committee will be asked to note the key achievements of the department during 2014/15.

Improvements include:

  • A drop in the number of young people placed in secure accommodation.
  • An increase in the number of children secured in adoptive placements.
  • More people requiring less homecare after using enablement services.
  • An increase in income generated for Dundee citizens as a result of successful claims for welfare benefits and tax credits

Social Work and Health convener Councillor Ken Lynn said: “I am pleased to see the improvements highlighted in this report.

“Significant changes have been made, some by ensuring a more targeted use of local services.

“Our staff are extremely committed to the care they provide for children and vulnerable people across Dundee.”
