Adult Social Work

The Adult Social Work Priority Setting Partnership worked to find out what research needs to happen in future to make social work with adults in England even better.  To do that they made a survey at the end of 2017 to ask people for their comments and questions about adult social work in England and arranged a workshop where people who use adult social work services, their carers, and social work practitioners agreed on which questions were the most important in their experience.

The Adult Social Work PSP Top 10 was published in November 2018.
