of The Social Work Show

Dear friends,

Due to the heightened risk of Coronavirus (COVID-19) with all the issues and restrictions that this current way of living entails we are postponing The Social Work Show on 11 May. This regular social work event has brought together social workers from across the UK for 15 years but as we are all aware we cannot proceed at the moment. The Hilton Deansgate has now shut for the foreseeable future and we are working with their events team to bring you a new date for the show which will be held later on this year.

Our commitment to serve and support the social work sector and our dedication to the well-being of those who need the services of our community means that we will concentrate on bringing you the lively, friendly, vibrant event we know it to be once we can safely do so.

If you have registered to attend the event we will keep you up to date with the new date and your current registration will still be valid for the postponed event. In the intervening period we will also keep you informed of all our events and products.

We hope you all stay well and healthy and we look forward to seeing you all soon.

Thank you for your support and understanding. 

Kellie Doubtfire

Event Director
