With a focus on bringing key research and knowledge closer to frontline social work professionals, iamsocialwork has lined-up eight speakers, from various backgrounds, who will share their research and knowledge over two evenings this February. 




Running alongside each other, and just a week apart, the evening events organised by regular Sanctuary Social Work News columnist, Zoë Betts, are open to all social work professionals, including students. 

The events promise to be informative and engaging, but also affordable at just £18.00 per ticket for each evening when using the Sanctuary 10% discount code (SANC10).

As the owner of iamsocialwork, Zoë Betts says:

“Collectively, this is the highest calibre programme of speakers I have delivered to date and I’m beyond excited. Conferences with speakers as great as this should be open to all frontline workers”

With drinks and food included within the price of each ticket, and additional fundraising in aid of the charity Anthony Nolan, the events will be a great chance to meet other likeminded social work professionals.
