Panel discussion: how has Covid-19 changed social work with adults?

10/14/2020 11:30 - 12:30

The Covid-19 pandemic has affected nearly all aspects of our lives, work and society. And while there has been discussion around the ‘hidden harms’ for children and families that will be uncovered as schools return in the autumn, less has been discussed about the potential increased demand and impact on social work with adults.

This panel discussion will cover:

  • The impact of Covid-19 on the adults social workers work with.
  • How social workers and local authorities can manage the transition out of crisis and into recovery.
  • The positives from this period that the sector should take forward into the long-term.
