ABC of P Board 






The Approved Brokers Community of Practice CIC  is a not for profit company set up in 2021 by a group of community brokers based in Scotland. 


The community of practice is for independent brokers, professionals and other social care workers throughout Scotland who are interested in community brokerage and self-directed support.  

Our community of practice works to provide opportunities for community brokerage conversations, resources, peer support and professional learning.  By connecting and supporting our membership we work to develop, enhance and improve the quality of professional community brokerage practice in Scotland.

Members are required to work to an approved code of practice and to uphold the organisation's principles, standards and values.  

Our membership is drawn from community brokerage practitioners and related professionals working throughout Scotland. 

Through our community's brokerage practice we aim to contribute to conversations and changes within Scotland's wider social care agenda.


Through the experience and participation of our diverse membership, we work to be part of making positive changes for the people and communities we support.
