A national learning event to share and discuss findings with social work education stakeholders across England.

This NIHR School for Social Care Research (SSCR) funded project is carrying out a ‘call for evidence’ from social work qualifying courses across England in order to generate a baseline understanding of teaching and learning on multiple exclusion homelessness (MEH), identify any gaps, and showcase good practice. This national learning event will contribute to the development of a project report as a free resource to support social work education.
