Back to Past webinars

Friday, 11th October 2019

10.00 – 11.00

This webinar will be delivered by Dr Godfred Boahen, who is a qualified social worker and works for the British Association of Social Workers (BASW). The organisation is made up of about 20, 000 social workers who have come together to advocate for social workers and the people who use services.

Recently, the government asked the BASW to find out the skills, knowledge, and values that are needed to do good social work with adults with learning disabilities.

Together with adults with learning disabilities, carers, social workers and their managers, BASW co-produced the Capabilities Statement for Social Work with Adults with Learning Disability

In this webinar, Godfred will talk about how they involved adults with learning disability in creating the Capabilities Statement and what they thought was important.   Godfred will explain why his organisation believe that what they found shows the importance of good relationship between social workers and adults with learning disability that they work with.
