Service users get together with a social care academic and a leader in the home care sector to discuss how excellence can be achieved in domiciliary care.  We see examples of excellence in support offered to older people, people with learning disabilities and people with physical disabilities in their own homes.  Much of the focus is on the relationship between staff members and the people they support because getting that right is fundamental to excellent care.

In Experiencing Social Work people tell their stories of positive social work and the difference it has made to their lives. The book was inspired by the knowledge of the many positive stories of social work practice and a belief that we can learn more from what goes right than what goes wrong. Follow these stories to understand good practice, reflect on the lessons learned, and to feel uplifted by social work's potential for positive change, support, and social justice. Each chapter is constructed around one or more case examples, emphasizing the importance of service users’ own knowledge in developing our learning about good practice.
