Sharing experiences of rural social workers

Published on 19 May 2020

We've set up a blog to support the sharing of experiences, ideas and reflections about what it means to be a rural social worker in Scotland. The blog also aims to build visibility of rural social work’s contributions, and celebrate its distinctiveness.

It begins at a time when social workers are in the midst of dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, and responding to that. 

Read initial reflections from Monica Nicolin in Stornoway and Gillian Ritch in Orkney

If you would like to contribute your own experiences of rural social work, please contact Kerry Musselbrook at Iriss.
