Description
As our world becomes increasingly target-driven, outcome focused, and bureaucratic, how can social work not only maintain value based practice, and support socially just approaches?

This is the central question that will be asked at De Montfort University’s World Social Work Day Conference 2019. With presentations from academics, practitioners, students and service-users, we will examine power in practice, and how radical social work can allow us to be more creative practitioners.

By examining power, the day aims to identify how to promote service user views in practice, how to support newly qualified practitioners to develop into ethically minded professionals, and how to address the power imbalances inherent in social welfare.

Attendance at the conference is free to professionals working in social work, social care and allied professions, but requires booking due to limited places. Please register here.

Coffee breaks are provided - please bring your own lunch.

Limited visitor parking is available at the main DMU car park (LE1 9BH - £2 for the whole day, on a first come first served basis). If you require parking, please request it on registration.
