A countersignatory is someone in a social service organisation who is a main point of contact for the SSSC.
Countersignatories endorse applications for registration to confirm competence, good character and suitability for registration. They can also check the details of applicants and registrations in their organisation using MySSSC.
Supervisors in housing support services and care at home services must apply to register with us by 31 December 2016 to make sure they are on the register by the compulsory date, 30 June 2017.
The Scottish Government has yet to announce the registration dates for support workers.
