Coronavirus (COVID-19): Latest updates.


Hello world!

25 September 2015

Cardiff Uni social work involvementWelcome to Cardiff University Blogs Network.

Following a meeting of the Cardiff MA Social Work Service User and Carer group on 25th September, regular meetings have been agreed, together with a number of very useful suggestions on how SU and Carers could be involved in teaching for our students.  Another idea was that of setting up a way of communicating with the programme and each other, so I have set this blog up as a suggestion.

Feel free to comment, add material or information or to just read and follow.  It’s for all of our use!

Since this meeting, Sarah Jane Waters and I attended a Service User and Carers Involvement in Higher Education Conference at Bournemouth University where we talked about creating a wider network across the UK.  We felt we could use a blog for this and so I have opened this one out.  We can have a page we can continue to use for more local communication.

Best wishes

      Good luck for the start of the new blog. I will watch it with interest.

  1. Abyd Quinn-Aziz

    Here’s a site that service users and carers involved (or wanting to be involved) in the SW programme can use to stay in contact and to discuss things relevant to service users and carers with the social work MA. Please feel free to contribute, but do look at the community guidelines

  2. Abyd Quinn-Aziz

    So we have a date for the next meeting – 11th December in the afternoon, following the interview practice.

  3. Abyd

    Here’s a site that we can begin the conversation about how we can network across the UK. We can share tips and ideas as well as resources so that we’re not constantly reinventing the wheel. We can also look at this as a way of helping each other feel less isolated within our own areas.
