Social care and the seldom heard: Responding to diversity in practice and in teaching

At this seminar which is being held on Monday 24 February 2014 in Room 710, Muirhead Tower at the University of Birmingham from 3.30 - 5.30 pm, Sarah Carr, Honorary Senior Lecturer, will present the findings of a new Health Services Management Centre Policy Paper on the role of small community organisations in supporting seldom heard groups. Within the context of personalisation, adult social care and support needs to be more responsive to the increasing degrees of diversity among individuals, their communities and social networks. However, there is a risk that the perceived availability of community-based micro-provision makes it easier for statutory services to justify a lack of appropriate statutory support.
