The Deputy Vice Chancellor, Dr Kondal Reddy Kandadi, officially opened the innovative new University of Bolton Social Work Centre.
In this centre, student social workers are on a duty room rota, which enables the Centre to take referrals from other services, as well as self-referrals. The fracilities also offers collaborative research opportunities for evaluative research and/or exploratory interventions with social work and social care agencies.
The Social Work Centre has a vision to create links and working partnerships, which will strengthen and boost the range of support services available for the local communities to access. Ultimately this will have a positive impact on the lives of the people in Greater Manchester.
