The Adult Social Work Priority Setting Partnership wants to find out what research needs to happen in future to make social work with adults in England even better.  To do that we made a survey at the end of 2017 to ask people for their comments and questions about adult social work in England.  

We now have a list of the questions that people suggested for future research and people have voted for the most important questions on the list in their experience. 

The Top 10 most important future research questions as agreed by people who use adult social work services, their carers and the people who provide these services, will be published here in autumn 2018.
