ELFT colleagues have organised events in Luton and London to celebrate the World Social Work Day on Tuesday 19 March.

Bedfordshire and Luton teams worked in partnership with the University of Bedfordshire where the event is taking place to present different aspects of social work interventions based on human relationships. 

This is an opportunity to open the conversation on how social workers work with and for the communities. The keynote speaker of the event is Social Work Expert and Consultant Daisy Bogg.

The London event is taking place at Donald Winnicott Centre where Angela Foster, the author of the recently published book “Mother Accused and Abused” will give a short talk and take questions from the public. 

Angela Foster started her professional career as a Psychiatric Social Worker. She is now working across different teams, including forensics, substance misuse and child care services, and she published various papers and co-debited a number of books.

Both events are ‘Promoting the Importance of Human Relationships’ in social work and ‘raise awareness of the social work contributions and need for further action’, in line with the meaning of the World Social Work Day.
