SWIRLS/CSWIR: The Importance of Lived Experience in Social Work,18 October

Date: Wednesday 18 October, 2023
Time: 9am (BST)

This public event, presented with the Social Work Innovation Research Living Space (SWIRLS) at Flinders University in South Australia was an ‘in conversation with’ style event, where we discussed how the voices of consumers in the health and welfare sector is well established and increasingly important in the implementation of services. There is a growing movement in hearing the voices of people with lived experience to influence social work practice, education and research. This webinar included panel members from the UK and South Australia to share their experiences and make recommendations for the way forward.
