SWAN Edinburgh event – foodbanks: where does social work stand?

Speakers include Adrian Sinfield, Profesor Emeritus of Social Policy and University Fellow (University of Edinburgh) and Ewan Walker of The Trussell Trust and the Rock Trust, Edinburgh.

A little background to the use of foodbanks in Edinburgh and the Lothians can be found in this Scotsman article from December 2012. All are welcome for this discussion – how should radical social workers respond to the foodbank phenomenon?

We want to develop a network of service users, practicitioners, academics and students to support radical and progressive social work. We need a social work that is ready to challenge oppressive practice, that means working collectively across the country and internationally to advance Social Work.
