Social Works Ltd was established in 2003. We are specialists in all areas of social care and work with social workers, care staff, front line managers, directors, volunteers, people who use services, their carers and relatives.
Social Works Ltd is a specialist social care training and consultancy company, and as such all of our consultants, trainers and staff have extensive direct social care experience. We come from a variety of disciplines ourselves, and our team includes home care workers, social workers, residential care workers, ambulance paramedics, nurses, advocates and medical practitioners.
We work with over 30 organisations and our customers include: Royal Star and Garter Homes, Royal Alfred’s Seafarers Society, The Brandon Trust, Livability, ThreeCs and Headways as well as Lewisham, Lambeth, Sutton and Merton Councils.
Our Advocacy Service is dedicated to giving carers and service users a voice and a way to be genuinely involved in care planning, assessment, review and safeguarding investigations. Our consultancy work includes everything from policy development to Independent Complaints enquiries. All our activity from around the company feeds into our in-house training and staff CPD programme, making sure we stay sharp, fresh and up-to-date.
In training, we know that focussing on the work experience and the knowledge of our trainers is not enough. It’s far too easy to focus on the material that needs to be covered rather than whether anyone has actually learnt anything. Therefore we put just as much effort into how our trainers teach and how we ensure that people engage, learn and have fun.
