Report of a project involving service users in developing and delivering a module for social work students.
This reports on a joint project between Family Rights Group (FRG), ATD Fourth World, and Royal Holloway, University of London which brought together social service users with experience of living in poverty in the UK, social work practitioners and academics in order to develop a training module on poverty and social exclusion for social work students and practitioners, to be delivered by people with experience of poverty. This report provides a record of the work that was undertaken and a practical guide for the engagement of service user trainers to deliver such training in universities, colleges and the workplace. The project was funded by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, the Social Care Institute for Excellence (SCIE) and the Social Work and Social Policy Learning and Teaching Support Network (SWAPltsn).
