Delivering tangible and measurable results in our courses is rooted in all that we do. We believe that by improving the quality of social work practice with individuals and through partnering with organisations we make a vital contribution to society in general and vulnerable people in particular.
The Centre’s research programme is designed to improve the effectiveness of social work practice in order to protect the most vulnerable members of our society. Empirical research demonstrates impact in the efficacy of the practice of social work practitioners, to improvements in the effectiveness of social work practice in general.
