Workers’ Experience Meeting – 23rd July

Book here for the second Workers’ Experience meeting for UK social work practitioners, a closed event accessible to those who have registered via eventbrite.

These meetings are safe spaces. We can only challenge the status quo, which forgets the centrality of social justice in social work and abandons the well-being of the workers, if we share our stories. Our website is currently hosting two stories that we recommend you read before joining the meeting. We would like to add more.

This meeting will not lead with speakers. We will devote as much time as possible to your voice, to hearing what practice during COVID has looked like, what you expected to happen and what you think will happen in the future. What has happened to our relationship with people receiving social care services or intervention? How have local authorities responded to legislation changes? What have you been asked to prioritise – what is your role during COVID?

Book here. You will receive log in details, including a password, for the meeting 24 hours before it starts.

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.
