Highlights of an event that took place in Swansea on the 19th of October 2017
Social work and social care services are going through a period of unprecedented change in putting the Social Services and Well-being (Wales) Act 2014 into practice. Whilst individualised training can play an important role in supporting this, there is an increasing research and practice evidence to suggest that collective learning within the context of practice can be most effective.
This event brought together a range of people from policy, research and practice to explore what we already know about this subject and how we might use this knowledge to support team and organisational development as well as co-production with the people they support. The practice examples that were shared illustrated the centrality of inclusive values, relationships and making the best of serendipity in co-production, rather than mechanistic processes and pre-determined project plans.
