The Collaborative Outcomes Learning Tool (COLT)

The Collaborative Outcomes Learning Tool, (COLT), is designed to help sectors such as the police, local authorities, NHS and the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service understand the benefits of working more closely on issues such as domestic abuse, radicalisation, mental health, financial harm and substance misuse. These issues frequently cut across child and adult protection and require an integrated approach between services to provide the best outcomes possible for individuals at risk of harm and communities throughout Scotland. The addition of COLT to the WithScotland website ensures that this invaluable training resource is made more widely available to frontline staff, managers and educational bodies.
