to the UK's largest database of information and research on all aspects of social care and social work. Updated daily resources include legislation, government documents, practice and guidance, systematic reviews, research briefings, reports, journal articles and websites. Every resource listed includes an abstract. Links to full text are also included where available. Social Care Online is a particularly useful resource for staff, students and researchers working in social work and social care.
Social Care Online is changing
Social Care Online is changing. We are redeveloping the site and relaunching it in the summer. The new site will feature an updated design and improved searching options. We will still offer you the same extensive coverage of social care topics and we will still update the site daily.
However, for a short period – from now until launch –new resources will not appear on Social Care Online. This is because of work being carried out on the structure of the site. Resources from this period will appear when the site is relaunched. Our email topic alerting service will also be suspended for this time, but searching and downloading content and the facility for MySCO users to add events will not be affected.
Look out for further updates on the launch of the new Social Care Online.
