‘A Little More Conversation, a Little More Action’

– How service user and carer involvement can make a real difference

DATE: MONDAY 10TH APRIL 2017

TIME: 10.00AM-4.00PM

VENUE: COTSWOLD SUITE, ST JOHN’S CAMPUS, UNIVERSITY OF WORCESTER

This is a conference promoting ways of working with service users and carers across social work, health and higher education in these times of austerity. Examples of service user and carer involvement making a difference across social work, health, social care and higher education will be celebrated, highlighting examples of co-production.

BASW is a member of the Social Workers and Service Users against Austerity Alliance and is committed to working alongside service users and carers for social justice. Key speakers from BASW, user-led organisations and university service user and carer groups will present their own work at the Conference. Additional co-produced academic papers, posters and workshop presentations that cover any aspect of social work, health, social care or higher education are invited. We are particularly seeking contributions from service user and carer groups that can demonstrate having made a difference to resources, practice or policy.
