Developing Together Social Work  Teaching Partnership

News from Kingston University

Joint Universities Social Work Association Conference (JUSWAC)

Kingston University will be hosting the JUSWAC on the 27th and 28th of June on the grand challenges for social work: strengthening social solidarity and connectedness.

“We are excited to be working in partnership with JUSWA to host JUSWA 2024 Conference. Most colleagues will be familiar with JUC-SWEC Conferences, the forerunner of JUSWA, and the many opportunities for networking and sharing of interesting work. This year, the first annual conference of the new Charitable Incorporated Organisation JUSWA aims to continue the qualities synonymous with JUC-SWEC.

On day 1 of the conference, we have two keynote speakers. The first will consider the significance of inequality for the social work profession and the second will look at the important work undertaken by one of our local partners (Hestia) sharing their work on Modern Day Slavery. On day 2, the keynote speaker will consider the challenges in social work education of holding the line and pushing forward for social justice.

As per tradition, we would like to invite you to join us for a fabulous cultural social night which we are hosting at Ravens Ait (Island on the River Thames) on Thursday evening.

We very much look forward to welcoming you to Kingston University.”
