Tickets Available


Book NowNorthumbria University's Department of Social Work, Education and Community Wellbeing (SWECW) places itself strategically to play a significant role in aiding societal recovery and repair beyond the pandemic period (Future of SWECW, 2021).

Together with the Department of Nursing, Midwifery and Health (NMH), SWECW have a wealth of expertise in working with our partners in the north-east and beyond, supporting professional development and being responsive to workplace needs.

In this series we showcase some of our expertise in teaching and in research, to our partners and interested parties. We can offer bespoke CPD provision (either accredited or non-accredited). Working collaboratively, we can blend our CPD offer with our research and knowledge exchange strategies.

Session 8: Working with Communities from Different Cultures - Cultural humility and Culturally Appropriate Practices
Delivered by: Dr Hellmuth Weich and Dr Lucy Currie

There is a growing awareness of the changing demographic and cultural profile of the North East. Service delivery organisations (Social Services, the NHS, Education, Police and others) are aware of the opportunities and challenges that this changing community profile brings about.

The goal of this session is to illustrate how the training programme, designed by the Department of Social Work Education and Community Wellbeing, can help agencies to better prepare their workforce to work in diverse communities.

The session will look at some of the basic principles and then look in more detail into cultural humility. Some of the practical tools used will be briefly discussed and examples given of how for example cultural differences, language and can be understood to improve communication and engagement with service users.

Who Should Attend?

  • Local Authority adult and children services

  • NHS partners
