    Abstract

    First of three reports from a study of the potential effects of the Public Services (Joint Working) (Scotland) Act 2014 and the resultant integration of (adult) health and social care services on children and young people in Scotland and the services they use. The study was commissioned by Social Work Scotland (previously the Association of Directors of Social Work - ADSW) and carried out by CELCIS and Children in Scotland. The Report provides a useful summary of information relevant to current debates about integration. It also highlights the relevance of these debates for children and family services and provides context for the primary research strands of this study.
