These services are catered for by their taxes to the government. Scotland’s welfare state is responsible for several developments in the country that never be ignored. Some of these significant developments include free education to all; Beveridge report; state pensions; council housing; social insurance; and the development of the NHS. The development of the NHS There has been a discussion on the relationship between the welfare state and the development of the national service in Scotland for quite a long time. The National Health Service in Scotland is one of the best agencies in the country. It is as well important that the welfare state was built by the post-war government by the labor party. The government initiated three different acts for health service in the country. These acts were for Wales and England (1746), Northern Ireland of 1948 and, for Scotland of 1947. The welfare state ensured Scotland got its legislation based on the perceived problems in health care provision particularly in remote areas and the nature of prevailing administrative practices in the country (Sweeting et al. p. Therefore, the welfare state was quite important in ensuring free health care service especially at the point of universal, delivery and comprehensive. Free education for all Scotland is known for its great reputation on its commitment to ensuring excellent and proper education for all its citizens irrespective of their economic status in the country. As a welfare state, it is one of the first countries in the world to ensure a democratic education system where education was made open and available to both girls and boys in the country.

This explains the evident successes and strengths in employment and education in Scotland. Therefore, it is quite important to note the role of the welfare state in the provision of free education to all in the country. There has been a massive expansion of schools and the entire education system from pre-schools to the highest educational levels such as universities (Sweeting et al. p. High and excellent education achievement in Scotland and its system is strongly based on the principles set by the welfare state during the country’s creation. Question #2 Health inequalities refer to the avoidable and unjust variances that exist in the health of the people across the entire country’s population and between particular population groups in the country.

To address health inequalities, the framework aims to ensure high ante-natal care quality in the country for proper identification and address of all the early risks in the community. The frameworks aim at ensuring improved maternal nutrition, especially during nutrition. Besides, the framework outlines the improvement of interaction quality among children, careers, and parents in the early years of the children through the provision of high-quality services in parenting and home services in the community (Coles et al. p 337)). More importantly, the framework tackles the alleviation of poverty and the reduction of the environmental hazards in the community. It is as well important to note the need for a competent and confident workforce across the services for the affected population in the country. More specifically, the framework has a national practice model that is aimed at the successful creation of a common approach and language on the identification and meeting of the necessary concerns in the community.

Question #3 Children (Scotland) Act 1995 This is an act that requires the local authorities to ensures promoting and protection of the wellbeing of the children as their top duty in the community. The necessary protection and promotion of their wellbeing should be supported by providing them with the needed start in their early lives. National Guidance for Child Protection in Scotland (2010) This is a national framework within the practitioners and relevant agencies at the local levels both jointly and individually to agree and properly understand the relevant processes for collaboration in protecting and endorsing the welfare of the children in the community. However, the framework places much pressure on the government to redesign and intensify the decisions already made. This is a quite long-term project that will require commitment even from the unwilling stakeholders in the society.

Building the Ambition National Practice Guidance on Early Learning and Childcare Children and Young People (Scotland) Act 2014 This is a policy initiative aimed at supporting the transformational and ambitious expansion of childcare and early learning in the community. This is based on the fact that early childcare and learning cannot be separated and needs the collaborative support in enthusing, supporting and guiding the necessary changes for the delivering and broadening of the initiative to successfully create a seamless and holistic journey of their children from their birth to the school. It is as well quite important to note that early childhood care and education is essential in ensuring successful lifelong social integration, learning, employability and personal development of children and the young people (Bonner, 2017: 54). pp. It is quite a targeted and comprehensive action for successful acceleration of progress on every single component.

The program has been effective in handling the smoking problem that has been the major cause of premature death in the country. Reducing the rate of smoking in Scotland is an essential part of this product. Question #6 Early intervention refers to the identification and provision of effective and efficient support to young people and children who are most likely to be faced by poor outcomes in society. This is based on the fact that single inaction or omission of the workers’ duty is quite likely to harm the safety and wellbeing of those they are taking care of in the society. This explains why the code forms the wider legislation package, procedures, and policies of the employers, and practice standards that the workers must meet before they are employed. The codes of practice ensure proper improvement and regulation of the quality care for all the people who are affected by the services offered.

Duties and responsibilities The social service workers have the duty of respecting and appropriately promotes the wishes and views of all the citizens who use their carers’ service. Besides, it is important to note that it is the responsibility to effectively support the rights of all people that make use of their services in controlling their lives and making quite informed choices in the necessary services. This generally involves hitting, throwing, scalding or burning, throwing, shaking, suffocating or poisoning the child. It can as well be contributed to by the deliberately ignoring the ill health of the child. In some instances, children or young people have been emotionally abused in the community. This involves persistent emotional neglect or ill-treatment of the child to the extent that it results in quite adverse effects on the emotional development of the child.

Besides, it involves frightening or putting children in emotional danger. This is majorly intended to help the children build quite stronger relationships among themselves. Such relationships are quite important in ensuring they can make decisions that take into account every individual in the group. Therefore, giving the children the opportunity to play freely allows them to get involved in their decision making and in ensuring they actively take part in the accountability of all the decisions made at the playground (Bonner, 2017 pp 54). However, this risk enablement is quite dangerous in cases where the children take advantage of their freedom to hinder their rights. It is, therefore, essential to regulate all the risk enablement strategies in the community to fully control the children and the young people in the society. J. Looman, C.
