What is SocialWorkCompanion?
What exactly can I use the app for?
SocialWorkCompanion is a unique app which has been developed by social workers for
social workers. It is designed to enable practitioners, students, trainers and academics
in the field of health and social care and social work to keep up-to-date with news,
events and practice developments.
How easy it to access information and materials?
SocialWorkCompanion has a range of features that would be of great help and support
to practitioners, students, trainers and academics. There is instant access to various
legislations, practice reference and resource location. As well as the jobs, news
and events section, the video section contains a range of topics that would be of
interest to practitioners. This app provides contact details of local authorities
and social welfare organisations in the UK.
How else can I use the app?
The app is uncomplicated and it has been specially designed to make life easier
for those involved in health and social care and social workers. The icons and the
subject categories make for easy navigation. The favourites feature allows users
to customise information for quick and easy access and reference.
How can my organisation advertise jobs, events or services on the app?
The social forum section provides the ideal environment for practitioners, students
and academics to share ideas and exchange practice experiences. It is also a place
where information and suggestions may be passed on about what works or what people
have found helpful in their practice.
We welcome contacts from local authorities, day care centres and residential units,
employing agencies and all service providers who would like their organisation to
be featured on SocialWorkCompanion. Please complete the form in the partner section
on the website for a quick response.
