Celebrating World Social Work Day with live webinar

22 Feb 2016

The School of Nursing, Midwifery and Social Work are celebrating World Social Work Day on 15 March 2016 with a live webinar about Social Work in Malawi and Belarus

The event is being chaired by Professor Alys Young and there are two guest speakers – Anstance Fometu from Supporting Social Work in Malawi (SSWIM) and Linda Walker from the Chernobyl Children’s Project (UK).

The theme for World Social Work Day (WSWD) is ‘Promoting the Dignity and Worth of Peoples’. As the International Federation of Social Work states, “WSWD 2016 creates another opportunity for the profession to express international solidarity and to bring common messages to governments, regional bodies and to our communities.”

The webinar will begin at 11am and finish at 12pm with the opportunity for participants to ask questions of both Anstance and Linda.
