Regionally, the network has been instrumental in initially shaping FutureSocial, driving forward the Teaching Partnerships and undertaking work with the FrontLine and Step-Up to Social Work Programmes.
The Network has hosted 5 successful annual events focused on improving practice and is highly regarded nationally. The most recent PSW conference was held on 29th September 2021 as part of building back better following the impact of Covid. There was a large turn out and initial feedback has been positive.
Following on from the PSW conference, the PSW network is currently setting the agenda for practice development based on: 'Voice and Choice '; 'Anti-Racist Practice' and 'Staff wellbeing'. The PSW network are also developing closer links with Participation Network to enhance practice in the region.
