Living and learning together: conference report: August 2004

The General Social Care Council (GSCC) and Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) share a commitment to putting service users and carers at the heart of all aspects of social work and social care, including social work education. As part of this commitment, the GSCC and SCIE held a joint conference in November 2003, to promote and share different approaches to service user and carer involvement in social work education and training. This report provides a summary of the content of the conference, an analysis of lessons learnt and some suggestions and practical tips about putting this into practice effectively. We hope it will contribute to further developing knowledge and dissemination of good practice in this area.
