Friends Meeting House


Social workers play a vital part in supporting people with life limiting conditions and the people who are close to them. The Association of Palliative Care Social Workers are working in collaboration with the former College of Social Work and the British Association of Social Workers to produce a new resource to guide and support social workers in all settings, employers, commissioners, educators and people who need palliative, end of life and bereavement services to understand what social workers have to offer.


People with lived experience from Making Waves/Open Futures Research are working with us to ensure that the resource is informed by the voices of people who have personal experience of death and dying.


The resource will be launched at this event on 13 May to coincide with Dying Matters Awareness Week.


The aims of the launch event will be:

– To introduce the resource and how it can be used in practice by people in different roles
– To showcase examples of good practice
– To enable participants to share their own experiences and to make new connections .
