Service User and Carer Involvement in Social Work Education: Good Practice Guidelines

These guidelines have been prepared by Project 3.3, ‘Involvement of Service Users and Carers’, a project of the University of Dundee, University of Stirling and the Open University in Scotland, funded by the Scottish Institute for Excellence in Social Work Education. The document provides guidance for those involved in higher education to promote the involvement of service users and carers in the education of social work students. It draws on work undertaken by the project as well as making links with other institutions and research findings in the UK. It is based on the learning experience that has evolved fromthe project, including pilot studies, a demonstration project and development work towards a national group.
