Ampersand Advocates members appointed as Legally Qualified Chairs by SSSC 

Ampersand Advocates is delighted to announce that two of its members, Vinit Khurana KC and Laurence Kennedy, have been appointed as Legally Qualified Chairs by the Scottish Social Services Council (SSSC). 

In their new part-time roles, they will chair panels with social service and lay members to decide whether workers’ fitness to practise is impaired. They will also impose sanctions where necessary to protect the public and maintain confidence in the social service profession. 

The SSSC is the regulator for the social service workforce in Scotland. It protects the public by registering social service workers, setting standards for their practice, conduct, training and education, and by supporting their professional development. 

Vinit Khurana KC and Laurence Kennedy are both experienced advocates and their appointments further increase the extensive work that Ampersand members undertake in the regulatory field.
