Notes for editors:

GSCPF is an innovative network of social care provider organisations delivering services across Glasgow.

The original seed for the Forum was sown in 2001 by a group of Providers hoping to build a strong provider community, where common issues could be raised, debated and represented.

In 2006, the Forum launched with the support of Glasgow City Council Social Work Services funding and the employment of staff.
