Local authority social work statistics (LASWS) criminal justice group


The LASWS Criminal Justice Group (LASWS:CJ) aims to ensure effective communication between Scottish local authorities and the Scottish Government with regard to the collection or monitoring of statistical information from local authority social work services departments.

The primary role of the LASWS:CJ Group is to discuss and agree any proposed changes to the annual data collection, and to discuss issues which are relevant to the gathering of criminal justice social work data.
