Named Social Worker

The Department of Health initiated the Named Social Worker programme in order to build an understanding of how having a named social worker can contribute to individuals with learning disabilities, autism or mental health needs achieving better outcomes; specifically that they and their family are in control of decisions about their own future, and are supported to live with the dignity and independence which we all strive for. This programme is about trying something different, piloting new ideas and generating early and indicative evidence as to their impact.

Interested in transforming the lives of people with learning disabilities?

The Department of Health is continuing to support the work on a Named Social Worker and is looking for two new sites to join the pilot.

Find out how you can become a pilot site by downloading this flyer. Closing date for Expression of Interest forms to be completed is 25 August 2017
