Lonbay, Sarah and Deacon, Lesley Portal Podcast: Linking Research and Practice for Social Work. Series one. Episode 0. [Audio]

Item Type: Audio


When working in frontline practice having the time for, and access to, current research can be difficult. Join Dr Sarah Lonbay and Dr Lesley Deacon as they interview researchers about how their work can be used to inform and develop social work practice. The show is for anyone who is interested in social work and for anyone who wants to keep up to date with the latest research and use this to inform their practice. The Portal Podcast explores the work of a different social sciences researcher in each episode and aims to support people to access, understand, and make use of research.

In this episode, Sarah and Lesley introduce the podcast and the upcoming episodes. This series focuses on the Working Papers from the Centre for Applied Social Sciences at University of Sunderland. In each episode we speak to a different researcher about their work and how their findings relate to social work practice.
