Practice notes: social security, benefits and the role of social workers

A few suggestions for distribution: pin up in your workplace and give to fellow practitioners – send around your union branches – hand out to fellow students and educators – pass around women’s centres, disabled people’s organisations and service user and carers groups – hand them out at the bus stop! 😉

This resource is intended to be USED in social work and care practice. We hope this will prove a reviving response to the welfare reforms and a tool for all those who encounter it.

NB: the document is hyperlinked so it works best as an electronic copy. That said, if you do a simple internet search on the organisations and themes mentioned, the referenced websites should be easy accessible. Sneak off some copies on your department’s photocopier today…
