Health and Social Care

Social work is a responsible and privileged career finding out about peoples lives, listening to their stories and ensuring their rights are respected. Helping people make sense of what is happening in their lives is incredibly important. My passion is to help students learn about the knowledge, skills and values required to practice as a social worker.
