Disability campaigners to produce guidance for social workers
Disability campaigners will produce guidelines for social workers on how to help service users become more physically active.
Disability Rights UK is producing the guidance after the charity found many disabled people don’t know what activities are available or what they can spend their personal budget on.
The organisation has identified that social workers can play a key role in discussing these issues during the assessment, supporting planning and review processes. It now plans to develop evidence-based guidelines that can help practitioners in their day-to-day work.
