Social Work: Events



We host a range of events for our wider social work community. Some of these are more formal opportunities for learning - learning about developments in social work and  keeping up-to-date with initiatives in practice. Others have a more informal, networking purpose, whilst also being focused around broadly educational issues.

Both kinds of events demonstrate the vital importance which we place on knowledge exchange - the exchange of knowledge between all the stakeholders who are involved in social work - practioners and managers, academics and students, service users and other members of the public more generally. We hope that you will join us in taking this forward - we have much to learn from each other!
