An Invitation For Social Workers To Take Part In An Online Survey

We would like to invite you to take part in an online survey on working with service users who have experienced trauma, the impact that it may have on social workers and the role of support in mediating this impact.

We hope that the results will help inform us on how to support social workers better in their daily work. Participation is completely anonymous and is expected to take between 7-10 minutes. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries.
