SWAN is a network of social work practitioners, social care practitioners, academics, students and social welfare service users united in their concern that social work and social care activity is being undermined by managerialism and marketisation, by the stigmatisation of service users and by welfare cuts and restrictions. We believe that good social work is a worthwhile activity that can help people address the problems and difficulties in their lives.
This conference is an opportunity for social work service users, carers, practitioners, students and academics to debate ways of developing networks of resistance to defend social-justice based social work.
