BASW England Worcestershire Branch Event

Adult Social Care – how will the upcoming legal changes impact our work?

Speaker: Jackie Mahoney

Jackie, is co-chair of the BASW England adult thematic group, a social worker since 2008 and currently a team manager working for a Local Authority in the North West. 

There are a number of current reforms progressing through parliament relating to Adult Social Care including:

  • Health and Social Care Bill
  • White Paper

Jackie will share her views on the reforms and how they could impact on social work. She wants to find out what you as social workers on the frontline know about what is happening and discuss your thoughts and concerns.  Jackie will talk about how social workers can continue to have a voice and how the profession can be respected, whilst working with key partnerships, particularly regarding the integration element to policy reform.

Jackie is looking forward to talking with branch members.  She says: “I am a social worker and team manager working in frontline social work.  I am very passionate about social work.  I and the adult thematic group are committed to connecting with social work membership, supporting and empowering members to be informed and the best they can be.  There will be plenty of pictures and words and I will attempt to make what I say as interesting/entertaining as possible.  I look forward to seeing you”.
