Social Work Stakeholder Day

Resilience in Times of Austerity


The Faculty of Health and Life Sciences at Northumbria University is delighted to invite you to attend a short conference on Monday, 4 September 2017.

Resilience in Times of Austerity is an opportunity for professionals and stakeholders to access the latest research in the field. It also provides a chance to network and share best practice with colleagues across the region.

This one-day event will explore the contemporary issue of austerity and the challenges and opportunities this brings to social workers, partners and stakeholders.

The day will include a keynote speaker, several participatory workshops and a question and answer session.
