Knowledge exchange for social service practitioners adapting to the covid-19 context

The covid-19 lockdown is challenging us to think about new ways to work with children and families.  On 2 April 2020 SSPA facilitated a knowledge exchange of how social services were adapting to this changed context.  Social workers and social service practitioners from a range of NGO and iwi social services attended the session faciliated by Associate Professor Emily Keddell.  The facilitated discussion was structured around four areas of practice adaptation.  This document provides an overview of all responses.  There is a brief overview paragraph summarising each area of adaptation, then the ideas from practitioners.  Read it here
