CareKnowledge has provided a much needed response to ensuring that our front line social workers and practitioners in Families First have access to research, policy and current practice insights to support their direct work with Children, Young People and their families.

My thoughts on the resource were how easy and simple CareKnowledge was to navigate and locate relevant information on so many social care topics making my job not only easier but my practice more informed. Senior Practitioner, Social Work, First Response Service London

My use of CareKnowledge so far indicates that the service is cutting edge, contemporary and accessible. The Special Reports, briefings and front page articles are most useful for me as an academic in that they signpost the wider landscape, research and knowledge base that academics, researchers, practitioners, students and I would contest service users need to access. This gives me insight into core matters none more so than the Care Act 2014 implications which are huge for the SW profession. I look forward to increasing my usage of this service Course Leader BSc (Hons) Social Work School of Health Sciences & Social Work University of Portsmouth
