The Social Work Organisational Resilience Diagnostic: Workbook launch

We are delighted to invite you to the launch of the Research in Practice and University of Bedfordshire Change Project workbook on Improving Organisational Resilience in Child and Family Social Work.

The workbook is part of the Social Work Organisational Resilience Diagnostic tool that has been created by Dr. Louise Grant and Professor Gail Kinman. The project is underpinned by ten years of research into the wellbeing of social workers at the individual, team and organisational level and has been coproduced with the Research in Practice network of partners from across the children’s social care sector.

This new online tool aims to assess the extent to which organisational factors and conditions support the wellbeing of staff and combines a diagnostic survey with a workbook that will provide a range of targeted tasks and strategies to improve organisational health and promote optimum social work practice.

During the session you will hear in detail from Gail and Louise on their development of this resource and how this can be used to address some of the key challenges you are facing in the sector and support building resilience within your own organisations. How these tools can be used to inform a process of continual improvement will also be considered. Your organisation will be invited to participate in the diagnostic survey and take part in an active pilot of the workbook material.

The event will be hosted by the University of Bedfordshire and will also include Dr. Susannah Bowyer (Research in Practice) and Professor Donald Forrester (What Works for Children’s Social Care and University of Cardiff).

We look forward to seeing you there. The event is free of charge. We are expecting the event to be oversubscribed, so to guarantee a place please book early via the Eventbrite link.
