Making connections: partnership working with service user and carers in social work education

Service user and carer involvement in social work education has been mandatory for nearly 15 years now, with students and graduates valuing this highly.

There is a lot of learning to share — transferrable to educators and practitioners working across a range of public services, and relevant to policy-makers committed to mainstreaming person-centred approaches and power sharing.

‘Working with, rather than doing to service users and carers’ — will be key to delivering the kind of integrated health and social care and self-directed support we all want.

This full day event will be about sharing and celebrating the best, and asking and informing 'what's next?' 

There will be a mix of speakers providing both a Scottish and European perspective.
