Partnership in Social Care at a time of cuts

The project aims to creative approaches and practical solutions during a time of financial cuts to services

This is a service-user led project and was developed as part of a student-led and service-user led conference 'Partnership in Social Care at a time of cuts: creative approaches and practical solutions', in March 2012.
