Ultimately, social work is made by those at its very centre, whether that is experienced practitioners working their case loads, service users and carers getting the help and support they require or students studying to be the next generation of social workers, it is always good to talk!
This space has been designed with that in mind and will house blogs submitted to NESWA by a wide variety of contributors on a range of topics within the social work spectrum.
